Lovely organ music lured us into this small gothic church near the Le Centre Pompidou. People were assembling and handing out programs, so we hurried past to get a peek at the architecture in case we were crashing an event.
Many of the confessionals were empty with the exception of a few chairs here and there. As I neared the organ, I saw a student/teacher scenario that made me smile.
Has a happier word ever graced a cafe window?
Café Le Nemours is one of the most famous cafés in Paris. When you round the corner at Rue Richelieu and see it across Place Colette, it’s easy to understand why. As beautiful as it is during the day, there’s something magical about the warm light at night. Add rain, and it just about brings you to your knees.
If you’re in the mood for a mini escape, take a virtual tour of Place Colette and Café Le Nemours on google street view (a somewhat embarrassing guilty pleasure of mine).
Something about the way the warm light from the street lamps hits this spot. Gets me every time.
