|near the place du Tertre, the heart of|
Tourist Central. I do remember a time
when there were artists doing
their thing in this neighborhood, but it was
still a real place (wow, I must be pretty old!).

|This shop in the Galerie Vivienne, in Paris, |
features three things I love: globes,
maps, and musty old books.

|This is the church of St.-Nicolas-du-Chardonnet,|
in Paris's 5th arrondissement. When the Vatican

which for some reason upset a lot of people.
I really don't have an opinion about that. Do you?

a revolution against the landed nobility. As has
often been the case in Hungary, things
did not end well for Dözsa and his followers.

|I was in Paris for a short visit, and passed by the |
Repetto store on rue de la Paix one night. Ballerinas
come here to buy pretty tutus in sorbet colors . . .
|and standard-issue pale pink|
toe shoes too.
