Do you have a favourite metro in Paris?
I love this busy Saint-Michel station with the art-nouveau entrance
lots of action on the streets around and usually you'll be greeted by
sounds of music wafting up from one of the many
groups of buskers that frequent this station.
after riding the metro ~ one needs to partake of une petit cafe creme
before getting down to the more serious business of
shopping along the gorgeous Saint-Germaine &
Metro Abesses ~ is prettily decorated in the art-nouveau style
made popular by the designer Hector Guimard
this station still has its beautiful glass canopy
and walking down the stairs you can't help but notice the stunning
grafitti-art on the curved walls
I think my favourite of all is "L'Ecole Militaire"
I know it well ~like and old friend ~ it's on the purple line and
when I want to go over to the Place de la Concorde,
I just watch out on the front of the train
for "Ballard' et Voila!!
