Le Jardin du Luxembourg
We descended into the Métro again at Pigalle. The Métropolitaine is marvellous and gets you everywhere in just a blink.
On the train, Michael advised Madame that a certain gentleman near us was not in his right mind, and she rightly worried.
From Pigalle, - nous nous sommes dépêchés vers Notre Dame des Champs dans le sixième arrondissment, - and believed more of what the chimney pots had predicted.
For it was here that one finds the magnifique Jardin du Luxembourg and le Sénat.
What's more, we had arranged to meet Eric at the gate by the Rue de Assas.
Every man and his dog was here, this hot 30° day; but when we saw the sign, so unusual in Paris, "Pelouse Authorisée"; (sitting on the grass permitted) we thought ,"how civilized". (Crikey, - what else is grass for ?) They're not very Australian in some parts !
Next; more of these beautiful and inspiring gardens...
