Saturday --or Maybe Sunday Photo: Being in Paris

The apartment we are staying in is on the first floor of a classic Haussmannian building in the Fifth District. Even though the building is on a busy street—Claude Bernard, which with Gay Lassac and avenue Monge forms a circle around the hill of the Sorbonne----inside the courtyard it is very quiet. On the other side of the wall is the hospital of Val de Grace whose grounds are full of trees and bushes. The sun rises about 5 a.m. these days, and the sounds of thrushes has been waking us up well before. Lovely sound, lovely city.
