|Rue des Martyrs....a fab place to shop on samedi/Saturday morning.|
You never know just what you'll see in this neighbourhood. Here's some of the Saturday morning action.
|Beautiful Art Deco Metro signage at Abbesses (just one stop from our apartment).....and our drop off point |
for rue des Martyrs.
|Lots of gorgeous things at the brocante....mais tout trés cher/but everything is very expensive!|
|What a cute bistro non? Across the road from Bistro Smiley is Rose Bakery...very yummy English food....porridge, bacon & eggs, kedgeree, scones and jam, toast and marmite etc etc......Parisians love it.|
|Betty loves Rose Bakery aussi/also.|
|As you can see, j'aime Rose Bakery aussi!|
|Graffiti at the top end of rue des Martryrs.|
|The May 2012 French election is all the talk here......someone's keen to be elected on rue des Martyrs.....|
"2012 Vote For Me"!
|Rue des Martrys has soooooo many lovely little restaurants.|
|This is the "I Love You" wall...very close to the Abbesses Metro.|
From 1000 written samples, he and calligrapher, Claire Kito chose 311 which were then transferred to deep blue glazed tiles, with red highlights. It's really fantastic street art....and such a Parisian message non?
|Everyone loves a bargain on a samedi morning.|
|Crowd control on rue des Martyrs.....trés chic non?????|
|You can also get a fab view of Sacre Coeur from the top of rue des Martyrs.|
Voila! Rue des Martyrs is a very interesting street....and if you have time to visit it, I know you'll enjoy it.
Tomorrow morning Pierre and I are off to Amsterdam for a few days to check out the worldwide flower auction at Aalsmeer (just outside Amsterdam) and also to revisit the Van Gogh Museum. Perhaps there may even be time to visit Rembrandt's House and Museum...another fab spot in Amsterdam.
Mon Dieu!!! So much to see and do.
