Rue Monge is one of those Parsian streets that you walk up slowly
especially with 1 large suitcase in tow!
I commenced my walk at Boulevard Saint-Germain
duly noting the delectable "Eric Kayser" artisan boulangerie on the right
and Cafe Le Barnum on my left
At the corner of Rue des Ecoles I passed a wonderful fleurist
"L'ile aux Fleurs" with big buckets of flowers spilling out onto the street
filling the morning air with their sweet perfume
Further up the "Arenes de Lutece" that amazing outdoor amphitheatre
built by The Romans in the 1st century AD.
A film company were filming and made many repeat shoots
of children running onto the centre carrying huge bundles of colourful baloons.
I though it all looked so perfect but the producer would yell coupé
and then start all over again.
Finally arriving at my destination the lovely -Hotel Acte V- for a 1 night stopover
before moving, with my sister and her husband, into a studio in the 7th.
