Café Life

I love this photo. It was taken out of a coach window (hence the reflections!) during a school French exchange trip to Versailles palace May 2008. It epitomises French café life for me with the trees, table layout, sun umbrellas, window shutters of the background building and people enjoying lazy afternoon refreshments.

Here is another one taken that same week. It's in the streets of Paris in the St Germain area. Spurred on by our hunger we eventually headed to La Taverne de Cluny, 51 rue de la Harpe, 75005 Paris where I did my usual Croque Monsieur rating commentary...
