My good friend Peter and I had a nice lunch with a lovely French friend of his, who he tutored English many moons ago, when we were all young and free, in the 80’s.
walked to my apartment in the 12th, then headed down to the Seine and over it, to the left bank, along the river,
all the way to the end of Boulevard Saint-Germain, in the 7th arrondissement. I couldn’t find the shoe shop and tried to remember what I was doing, the day I was in this area and where I walked. I back-tracked and headed up Boulevard Saint-Michel, oh yes, this looks familiar – voilà – there it was. One pair left, in my size – sold to the Aussie who will need a new pair of boots, after all that walking.
This is not an old photo, yes, the Christmas tree is still up!
OK, this will give me an opportunity to walk along the banks of the Seine and say some more goodbyes.
What do you think?
