Last week I went to Paris! It is a beautiful city and I had great friends to visit, so Thank you Isabelle & Thierry!
It was the perfect opportunity to take the Existentialists, Jean-Paul Satre & Simone De Beauvoir to revisit some of their old haunts. So with Isabelle we did the alternative tour of Existentialist Paris
Coffee at the Cafe De Flore
A word about the lobsters…I read that Jean-Paul Satre took mescaline and had hallucinations that lobsters were following him everywhere. So… I knitted him some ‘hallucinations’!
Cafe Deux Magots, which doesn’t mean maggots. It means two small monkeys!
The Boulevard sign…
Montparnasse Cemetery where the real Simone & Jean-Paul are buried.
Finally, the Sorbonne, where they met and studied.
It was much better that the usual sightseeing touristy tour of Paris!
