Le Dépanneur Bar and Terrace

Last Summer, Chéri and I had drinks on the terrace of Le Dépanneur, in the trendy area of the 9th just below Pigalle (refered to as SoPi).

A Paris Christmas Stroll

In my hometown in New England, we always had an event in mid-December called the « Christmas Stroll ». It was a a time for the residents and those of neighboring towns to come and enjoy together the Christmas ambiance that was always so well exemplified in the decorations.

Springtime in Paris

I literally wrote « Sprintemps » in the title before correcting it to « Springtime ». I think my franglais has gotten a little out of hand. But that isn’t the subject of this post. Or is it…. If you listen closely in the beginning of Springtime in Paris, you can almost hear a collective sigh.. Aaaaaaaaahhhh! The light comes back and we all… Read more →
