"It was a pleasant cafe, warm and clean and friendly
I hung up my tattered coat on the rack to dry
and ordered a coffee - the waiter brought it and I took out a notebook
from the pocket of the coat and a pencil and I started to write"
This wonderful old Brasserie decorated in the Belle Epoque style
with brass hooks and coat racks and deep rich mohogany walls
reminded me SO much of the quote by Ernest Hemingway
I couldn't help but take out my point-and-shoot
and capture that old weathered coat.
