Yesterday we strolled around our neighborhood in the Marais, walked both islands, and then wandered in the Left Bank. Rain threatened but never materialized, and Mary found her favorite scarf shop and snagged some gems (this is at least her fifth or sixth visit (I am of course underestimating) in the last three tips). We wandered by the Cluny museum, which is wonderful, saw some streets that still had Christmas lights, and decided to return at night. On our way back to the apartment, Mary stopped to see her favorite merchant and informed me that she wants to bear Paul's child (see below her overwhelming joy at being in Paul's presence once more).
After resting up, we returned to the Left Bank at night in what began as a drizzle and turned into a downpour. I'm posting some pictures of those first outings.
