Rue Cler - un café et beaucoup de chaussures


A café on Rue Cler


This delightful café on Rue Cler is a scene repeated all over Paris.  
I love to people-watch and wonder about their "stories."  


Perhaps the shoes will give us some clues...

Des chaussures de ville ou de sport, mais assez chics dans l'ensemble, il faut dire que le quartier l'est aussi

Shoes are always the great bane of traveling. No matter how many pair you take, I never seem to have the right ones to cover all occasions. Sigh.

Great picture, looks like a busy day for this "café"!

Relationships formed, others broken, problems solved, others made, tourists recovering and others lost. The hubub of this cafe suggests it has seen it all Genie.

Haha, now I'll be looking at shoes and think about what you wrote!

Such a great Parisian scene!

I love people watching too, and I'm sure the lovely little cafes around Paris would be the best place for it!

We stayed at a small hotel on Rue Cler one of our trips, I loved the small walking street and all of the shops

It's true—you can tell a whole lot about someone by their shoes. [But on my last trip, I fooled everyone by wearing someone else's. :~} ]

I stayed in a friends apartment near Rue Cler and once I got over the fear of going out on my own in the evening ... (it was a brave step) I had to go there every evening .. Have Kir or Wine and then home to the apartment .:-)

We had a lovely dinner at a restaurant on Rue Cler called TriBecA. It was fine, not great. But the time there, the memories and ambience made it something to remember. Perhaps if we had been able to dine outside...

Rue Cler is too touristy for me!

Jack said...

My shoes would tell you that I have very big feet. And that I like comfortable shoes that I can slip into without lacing and rarely have to polish.

It must be good, look at that crowd.

Although tourists have found Rue Cler, it is definitely a neighborhood and on weekends you can see the families out for a stroll and shopping.

I love shoes but limit myself for Paris trips to what will fit in a carry-on... I could not wear heels on those cobblestones anyway!

Bises,
Genie

Hope no one drinks too much and has to use the "restroom"! I remember how socked I was when I went into one and it was a hole in the tile floor. My students refused to use it. So funny. Loved eating out on the streets. So filled with the feel of Paris. genie
