The view from the afternoon



I took these pics from the bus back window. After a very quiet morning at the office, I took the bus to run a few errands in the city. August is so nice when most Parisians are out of town.
The city slows down and you can really enjoy the beauty around you.

I think lots of Parisians are oblivious of the beautiful surroundings. Taking it for granted...

soooo...when IS a good time to visit?

Well I'd say now is a pretty good time! Queueing before the monuments under the cold rain can be dreadful... But then the city is still beautiful no matter the season and bad weather can be an excuse to indulge on delicious treats! Thinking about a little trip?

Thanks Erin! Ah these are the famous antique book dealers and souvenir stands along the Seine. You can find treasures there as they sell decades/centuries old newspapers, books, posters and whatnot (made in China too)!:))
You've got a very lovely blog by the way!
