This post is going to be mostly images because the sun came out this morning. What a difference that makes on your mood as well as on your lens.
Maha and I put on all our gear and took the metro to Chatelet--the busiest interchange in Paris and the only way to get to the Marais from Saint Germain des Pres--and took Line 1 to St. Paul.
From there we walked into the Marais for some shopping and eating, enjoying the sunshine and the beautiful shops. The shops in the Marais are fully open on Sundays, one of the few areas in Paris where they are.
We got there about 10:30 when the streets were half empty and had breakfast. By noon it was hard to get through the crowds, lots of bicycles and baby strollers.
These candy colors ankle boots are not what we bought, but for a picture they were irresistible.
