A rainy weekend in Paris

Our exploration of Paris starts in the evening – our hotel is in Montmartre and so we decide to enjoy our evening in the cobble stone streets of this artist neighbourhood swirling the hill leading up to the Sacré-Cœur. The area bursts with tourists and tourists shops and a lot of street artists. They’re not all cartoonist but no Van Gogh’s either. Even though the paintings stalled out next to the painters all look alike, I still would’ve bought one of the colourful canvasses showing Paris street scenes if it weren’t for our travel picture crowded walls at home. Musicians add just the perfect background sound to the cosy atmosphere of the neighbourhood. A friendly woman playing accordion next to the Sacré-Cœur reminds me of a painting by my great-uncle showing a Parisian man playing the accordion. The grey/brownish colours of the cathedral walls are just perfect for an image that captures the imagination of picturesque Paris.
