"Boulangerie in Paris"

This warm shop on the Isle de la Cité in the center of Paris tempts all who pass by, even the dogs. This last trip I resisted, and decided to simply draw it. During my previous trip in 1971 I gained five pounds on bread alone. I discovered real bread, real croissants, real coffee - formidable! Nowadays we can get all these here - Merci Dieu.
