Paris Jun 11 2103 #1

Our first full day in Paris, bookmarked for walking around. Close at hand is the Place des Vosges with its elegant buildings around a formal French square. IMG_8958

From there we explore the Marais, with the Pletzl, the old Jewish area of narrow streets, small shops and the occasional chilling memorial plaque. 165 children from a Jewish school were deported and died at Auschiwtz.  The past casts a long shadow in Paris

Then it’s time for coffee.  We sit outside at a long table.   I notice a young woman  – her eyes sliding from her sketch pad to a woman talking on her mobile.  Then Harry becomes her subject – he’s absorbed in the map of Paris on his phone

Before we go, I ask her if we can see the drawing.  ”Is it ok to take a photo?”  She smiles and we talk for a while.
