Un deuxième café

There's a big café on the Place de la Contrescarpe that faces south and on this sunny Saturday morning it was very inviting. There were a few tables taken, but the place was mostly empty. Three American (I think) men were finishing their coffees at a table close to where I sat. They were obviously planning their day as tourists.

This café wasn't bustling, which was perfect. Click to caffeinate.

Another couple were eating croissants with their coffees. A man in a suit was buried in his newspaper. I ordered a coffee and took out my camera. A delivery truck pulled up in front of the café on the other side of the place and the driver unloaded whatever it was he was delivering.

  3. I like that quote by Leon & Sue. It is so true. Be advised, I'm going to steal it!

    Hope you and Ken will be feeling better very soon.
