Montparnasse

After the Eiffel Tower we walked towards Montparnasse. We stopped along the way for our second continental breakfast of the day…chocolate croissants and a big bowl of hot chocolate.

These are some interesting courtyards we peered into. Sometimes the doors were open;
sometimes they were closed.
After so many months of different shades of brown and grey in Toronto, these plants were so fresh and green.

Fontaine des Medicis in the Jardin du Luxembourg.

The statue is of the lovers Acis and Galatea about to be ambushed by the jealous cyclops Polyphemus.
Quack. Quack. Quack.

Place St-Germain des Pres

Famous Les Deux Magots. Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone De Bouvier were regulars. Of course we had a drink there.

French modern art – this was installed a month ago.


Still not sure how Jeff didn’t get run over while taking this shot…
