I got a cold on Tuesday, but thankfully it wasn`t a very bad one. I felt half way better by Wednesday.
I had lunch and breakfast. Then Michael and I got ready to go on a walk up the Canal Saint Martin, one of my favorite places to exercise in Paris. It was sunny and chilly.
I took the shot above during our walk. At this point we were close to the periphery of Paris, much of which is an eyesore. When I am in parts of Paris like this, I long for nature.
I would like to see many more gardens like this one, spread all over Paris. In a couple months this plot will be brimming with life.
We reached our destination which was a large community center in the 19ème. The following is a large carousel hand crafted by Parisian artists.
This community center is called centquatre. Inside we found lots of people preparing for a large culinary exposition that would be starting the next day. There were hundreds of cookbooks in all different languages. The cover of this one is a photo of France that I`ve been seeing since I was a kid. It made me want to come to France.
