Evening on the Boulevard

Marais District
Oct. 26, 2005

< < previous | next > >

Around sunset, I found Eddie, Pamela and Ethan in their cozy neighborhood cafe near the Place des Vosges. They were brave to attempt a trip at this moment, with a toddler in hand and another on the way. Jet lag is just that much tougher when complicated by the disrupted sleep patterns of a child who doesn't quite know what's going on. Still, they were making the best of it. After dinner, Pam & Ethan crashed in the apartment and Eddie and I made our way from one cafe to the next, sampling French beers and appraising the stream of Parisien strollers passing by.
