Rue Cler


A favorite street of mine as you can run into old friends and make new ones.  This pedestrian street is only a few blocks long, but it is a delightful neighborhood  and the decorations are appealing in the daylight as well as at night.


I am thinking about my friend Christiane who I first met here several years ago, 
and who shared with me her treasured fèves anciennes.  We have kept up with each other over the years, and Holly and I saw her in Paris recently.


It makes me think of an old poem, "Make new friends and keep the old.  
One is silver and the other gold."  I do treasure the friends I have made in Paris.



Rue Cler
75006, Paris

  4. Rue Cler is also one of my favourite Parisian streets. They still have the same Christmas decoration this year.

  10. There is a TV travel show hosted by Rick Steves, every time he does a show on Paris, he mentions rue Cler, so I made a point one year to have a look. I didn't find it as special as he seemed to think it is.
