I happened upon this photo today. It makes me dream of going back to Paris.
In the late 1990s, I visited Paris with some good friends. We stayed in the apartment of an Italian friend who was living in Paris in the 12th arrondissement.
I remember our Metro stop was Nation.
Because we were visiting someone who knew their way around, we hung out in some great places we would never have found as tourists.
Ah someday, Paris, I will come back to you.
