Travel: Paris 2019

We arrived in Paris midday yesterday via the Eurostar fast train after a pleasant 2-1/2 hour ride from London!  What a nice and affordable way to travel from the UK to Europe.

Today we started one of several walking tours on our agenda including the Viaduct des Arts, Bastille to Les Halles, a movie at Les Halles shopping center and entertainment complex.  And finally back to our base  near the Bastille (11th arrondissement).

Once an elevated Railway, now a welcomed walking pathway.
A unique glass facade in the morning sun.
A classic bakery from the 1800s
A unique interior crucifix in a 17th century church,
Paroisse Saint Antoine Des Quinze Vingts
Place des Vosges is as splendid as ever.
Sunny morning in the 12 Arrondissement
This Israeli restaurant in the Marais has been popular for decades. We enjoyed falafels, hummus, three salads and a tasty black beer.
The massive Eataly is another favorite restaurant where a lunch is on today’s agenda,
