Le Marais avec Tatie Merle et Oncle Irv

The Marais... is one of my favourite places to go in Paris (partly because I love to go to "Le Loir dans le Théière." But, falafels are very popular in this part of town, too!

He's Uncle Irv...

A posh boutique

A young teen in the Marais...

I HOLLA for challah!

The Rose of the Desert on the rue des rosiers!

That looked like fun and the food must have been really good. Your family is so lucky to visit you as I believe the best way to visit a country is to have relatives there.
You got married in San-Diego. Did you have a ceremony in France too?

Hi Nadege!

It was a great time! I know all the great spots to go to.. hahaha!

Yes, married in San Diego and we thought of having a ceremony in France for family and friends here... but just never got around to it... So, we just let it go...

Hi Leesa!

What a glorious pictorial of Paris!

I especially love how you added a soft focus to some of the images. It makes them look vintage.

Oh, btw...I LOVE falafels!!!

Hope you're having a great day!

These photos are just amazing! And now, for some strange reason, I am HUNGRY. :)

I love these photos! I am so glad I got to shake hands with your Uncle Irv the other night. It was a kick to say hi to him -- he seems like quite the character. :)

Glad you had fun in the Marais.
