Well that's a very beautiful doorway. Reason enough to live there.

Enjoyed your comments on your morning commute. Yes, all those people counting their centimes at the bakery always act like it's the first time in their life they've ever had to pay for anything.

But the St. Paul renovation is much improved area from before. At least it's wide enough so there's enought room and you can more easily avoid the non-profit peddlers hanging around there.


Lovely writing. I'm in the maligned 12th. I find it very lively but most think it is a boring arrondissement.

The sixteenth sounds charming.

I work just behind Ave Montaigne. The area is boring to "Monsieur Tout le Monde" and crawling with people who think they are top bananas. Sigh.

Run Around Paris

I'm really looking forward to details of your party. It's truly a fabulous idea.

I found your site by accident while googling Everything French. I found Ms Glaze first and it led to your blog.
I visted Paris for the first time this last June. Unfortuantely I was sick most of the time. I was on a Gardening tour. I have been a little Paris struck ever since.There is this feeling that comes over me when I think of Paris...I saw some amazing as well as sad things coming off the train.
I plan on returning, but in the meanwhile thanks for the education.
Of by the way I am a Garden Designer


Greetings from Istanbul,
I came across to your blog on It is so good that you are a group of people, writing blogs about your city and come together. I am from Istanbul and how many bloggers do I know ? None. Please write about your coctail party also.


Keep up the great work - your life amazes me.


I'll be living in the 16th district next year. Fortunately I don't fit any of the stereotypes for this district of Paris!
