My village in the 15th Arrondisment of Paris


Daydreaming has been a big pastime for me these days. It's springtime in central California - the weather is gorgeous - and I am homesick. So I daydream about shopping on Rue de Commerce. I daydream of a Steak Tartare at the friendly Café du 15eme  around the corner. I daydream about the Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings underneath the metro line at La Motte Piquet-GrenelleI daydream because it makes me feel at home.  "Home" is our uncommon Parisian quartier that has managed to maintain it's original village charm while the rest of Paris was busy changing.
