La Rive Gauche

There are hundreds of little caf├ęs in Paris, but this one is famous. 

Located in the Montparnasse Quarter in the 14th Arrondissement, it was a gathering place for the artistic world.  People like Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, Marc Chagall, Ezra Pound, Salvador Dali, Edgar Degas, and others, have all spent time here. 
Our hotel was about a mile from this restaurant, on the left bank of the Seine, and although we did a lot of walking around, we saw this place while on our bus tour.  I didn't know it was famous when I snapped the photo, I just loved the building and the red awnings all around.

There's so much to see in this city, and I'm so surprised at how it has affected me.  I never had any desire to go to Paris.  I've wanted to visit France, just not Paris, but now that I've been there, I know I'll be going back.
