The Neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Our last day in Paris started with the sounds of music.
Near to our Airbnb, a band was performing delightful Parisian jazz music outside of the cafe Paul.
The name of the group, Les 5 Doigts et le Pouge.

Place Saint-Michel Public Square
We stumbled upon Place Saint-Michel, a public square in the Latin Quarter, on the borderline between the 5th and 6th arrondissements.

Tripping Over History in The 6th Arrondissement
Café Procope or Le Procope, opened in 1686. Marie Antoinette and Napoleon were once regular patrons of this disputed “oldest cafe in continuous operation in Paris” restaurant.
ChoChotte theater hall was a haute couture shop in which Madame Caussade used to receive her customers. Then in 1986, Madame Caussade went from dressing women to undressing them as she transformed her shop into a performance hall in which new erotic shows are created every week.
Aah… The Food…
I was in gastronomic heaven while enjoying a hot dog from Mich’ Sandwiches then a Nutella crepe from a small creperie operated by lovely woman.
Meanwhile, Michael savored his old favorite, a meatball sub from Subway.
