See the columned portico right down t'other end of the night shot? That is the National Assembly building, the front of which faces The Seine over which the Pont de la Concorde stretches to that bit of turf where Madame de Farge k-nitted. I am standing in front of the NA building looking back up this way to take the day shot.
This is Rue de Bourgogne in the 7th. To tell you the truth, I did not know much about the 7th when I booked the 4th floor studio for a month. I have previously stayed in two separate apartments in the 4th. Although both on the Left Bank, they are quite different. In Sydney terms, the 4th is Surry Hills whereas the 7th is Woollahra.
I discovered during Bridge-Walk (part the first) today, that Boulevard Saint-Germain commences at the National Assembly. So, I can see me starting there and walking until I am too tired to go any further. Need a new map first. A bloody gypsy took my old map today. They try to sell them back to you.
