"Passage Molière"

I loved finding the mysterious and inviting alleyways in France. This one in Paris was full of art and food, my favorite combo. In my French class with Madame Granger we read Moli¸re's Le Tartuffe (the Miser) - way old, silly and fun. I'd like to try the Restaurant de Vieux Molière there. The chairs are stacked up resting between meals. If you ever go there, tell me about it. The cobblestones and bright flowers were a treat to draw. And the bicycle (what, another!) had two fun red locks on it. I hope this scene evokes Paris for you, and urges you to step right in.
