A Village Street at the Foot of Montmartre

As I was running some errands the other day around Montmartre, I stumbled upon the most darling little cobblestone street that I had never seen before.

Set right off of the boulevard de Clichy, it is an absolute haven of calm and charm nestled amongst the chaos and bustling of Pigalle and the red light district. I was enchanted immediately and took a few minutes to stroll up it, take some photos and imagine what might have hapened here over a hundred years ago or more…
Cité du Midi

I was drawn in by the potted plants lining this perfectly maintained cobblestone path, and held captive for my short stay by the 19th century elements that helped me drift back in time to when surely artists and Moulin Rouge dancers lived out the dramas and lives here in turbulent episodes…

Paris is full of these kinds of scenes. And they pop up at you out of nowhere and make you fall in love with this city over and over again (in spite of all the frustrating fascets of Paris). They should call it the city of eternal seduction, just for that reason!

Have nice internet stroll up the Cité du Midi…

Bises!
