nice places to live, or die, in Paris

Lunch at the cafe – delicious, poached salmon on a bed of leeks in cream, with rice. The waiter brought me a little stool for my computer, and I made lists. Drinking water, you note – this is lunch.

 Walking in Montparnasse, looking up at the top floor apartments where I’d like to live …

 ,,, and here…

… and especially here. And then I went to the Montparnasse Cemetery, where I would not like to live. But it was thrilling to visit these great souls –

Sartre and de Beauvoir, together for eternity.

The famous grave created by Niki de Saint Phalle.

Lots of flowers here. Don’t know who this is, but someone loves her.
