Marais in the rain

On March 11, once we’d cleared the airport, sent Allen off to work, and settled our luggage in our respective places, my parents and I took a quick walking tour of the Marais before I headed off to tutoring. One of the first City Walks we took has become my favorite, just for the number of quaint old buildings along the way. We did an abbreviated version, wandering through the arcades of Place des Vosges, ducking out through Hotel de Sully (look at the amazing ceilings in the bookstore), and then wandering down Rue de Rosiers. (Unfortunately none of my pictures were great.)

While I tutored, Mom and Dad walked Ile de la Cite, peering into Notre Dame and exploring the Deportation Memorial. Then we met afterwards for dinner and wandered back to Rue de Rosiers for falafel (where else but at L’As du Falafel).
