People watching in Paris

Last April when I had the incredibly good fortune to spend a month in Paris, I accidentally joined a school or church group on the platform at the Passy metro stop, waiting to go to to La place Charles-de-Gaulle, or it’s old name La place de l’Étoile. The little girl in the blue coat and red tights caught my eye! What a little lady!

What a happy accident for me!

I was also interested in the priest who was leading this group. You can see him standing behind the young lady. I must admit the first thing I noticed were his shoes! I was sitting in a chair on the platform, reading my messages, and saw his beautiful black leather shoes out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look, for you don’t see shoes like this everyday in Paris (for real, I mean it), and discovered the priest and his charges.
