Peaceful Paris Walk...........

~ Square Georges Cain ~

Backing directly onto the Musée Carnavalet on Rue de Payenne is a peaceful square (park) in the 3rd arrondissement where Marais residents can remove themselves from the high energy of their busy streets. It is here where they go to collect their thoughts, enjoy a boxed lunch, or read a few chapters. The noise of the surrounding streets dims down, hovers above the trees and you find yourself talking in hushed tones so as not to disturb this peaceful oasis. Just minutes are needed, maybe only ten or fifteen to revive your tired feet and eyes but still you rise from the bench reluctantly.............

  11. Hello dear Sande, oh you make me feel nostalgic of my Parisian life! i lived very near this charming square...thank you for those sweet souvenirs...

    also, sorry to hear someone stole your iphone while in Paris...this is so annoying.

    after reading your post on Astier de Villatte, i wonder whether i'm not going to be a new fan of their superb diaries..Ma vie is a great title too !
    Wishing you a great week

  12. Great posts on Paris ! Another favourite secret garden : at the Musée Rodin. Sit by the pond at the far end and let your dream meander...
