Reflections of a hanging lamp and a woman walking in Le Jardin du Palais Royal.
Palais Royal will always have special place in my heart. It's where I stayed on my first several trips to Paris. I used to be able to open the apartment door and step out onto the covered walkway inside of the gates of Palais Royal. The other door opened to Rue de Montpensier. I used to use that door when I wanted to walk to the local boulangerie patisserie, "Au Grand Richelieu." They had the most delicious pain au chocolat and I was always greeted with a warm smile from the proprietor Claude and his cat.😀
Claude couldn't speak English and I couldn't speak French (except for bonjour, s'il vous plait and merci), but it never made a difference. The Boulangerie Patisserie Au Grand Richelieu was over 200 years old, but sadly, it closed its doors forever several years ago. Another place that I have fond memories of was a little restaurant on Rue Thérèse called Chez Stella. Stella ran the place and interacted with guests like it was her home and not a restaurant. Sadly, that is gone too. Thank God for memories.
Have a great weekend!
