Worn and ... Waiting?
I've seen this chair on Rue des Ecouffes since 2009. It's an odd choice for an outdoor chair, no? Rue des Ecouffes intersects with Rue des Rosiers right near L'As du Fallafel. It's often the street we stroll while stuffing our faces with chick pea and tahini goodness. Once or twice we were tempted to sit on this chair, but an old, bearded man usually appears in the adjacent window with a glance that's clearly meant to discourage. Is the chair his? Did he leave it out for someone, say 5 years ago? And is he still waiting for them? Don't sit down! This chair is reserved. For whom?
