Early one April morning Marie and I found this gentleman just beginning his daily routine, arranging the café chairs on the terrace of Café de la Paix. It was designed by Charles Garnier, the architect of Palais Garnier which sits just over your shoulder.

I would love to stop there this Monday morning for une noisette with my friends.
