You're right, the sun did shine at times but that take a bit of patience to wait for the sun to come out Nonetheless, I'm glad I've given the impression of sunny pictures.

Finally my photobucket has sorted itself out so more regular updates from now on. Thanks for all the support so far. Let's continue the tour towards Pont Alexandre III and beyond.

PART VII
St. Germain de Prés

Appropriately, this was the area of the city that I was staying in. The area of the city gets its name from the Abbey of St. Germain de Prés and the main boulevard running through the area takes the district's name too. This is one of my favourite areas with it's numerous narrow streets with a plethora of lovely restaurants. To anyone staying in this part of town, I recommend 'Le Petit Zinc'. Of course, Haussman set upon creating Boulevard St. Germain de Prés in order to make a thoroughfare west to east through what was otherwise a maze of narrow street approximating the area in which the boulevard is now. Enjoy.

Hehe, plenty more pictures to come, mate. Thanks for your supportive comments.

Any other comments from anyone else on this lovely city? I would have thought Paris would attract more fans.

Alma Marceau, Saint Germain des Pres, Rue du Bac it is really the posh Paris.
The areas that you visit are beaten path of Paris but you show these in a different way than most Paris threads I seen.

I certainly got that impression too. Though I would love to see some off the beaten track areas of Paris too. Glad you like these photos.

Great photos of a great city - I have visited a lot of the major cities of the world and Paris still remains my no.1 favourite, despite some stiff competition.

Hi. Thanks, glad you like the photos. Yes, Paris is amazing and I can't wait to go back and see areas I didn't see this time around.

Hi, thanks for posting this in this thread. Your previous post wasn't deleted, the whole thread was. You posted in my redundant Paris thread which Jan has kindly closed and this is the one that will be updated.
