A Paris Cafe
I took this photo in 2005, we had just arrived in Paris by way of Nice – a three-hour train ride.
From the veritable WikiPedia:
Parisian cafés serve as a center of social and culinary life in Paris. They have been around for centuries in one form or another, the oldest one still in operation is “Café Procope” on Rue Buci, since 1686. … Paris cafés crystallize the quintessential Parisian way of sitting undisturbed for a couple of hours, delightfully watching the world go by. Some of the most recognizable Paris cafés include Café de la Paix, Les Deux Magots, Café de Flore, Le Fouquet’s, Le Deauville, as well as a new wave represented by Café Beaubourg, Drugstore Publicis and many more.
