From Saint Sulpice to Brasserie Lipp

Today we took a little walk around the left bank of Paris, with a visit paid to St Sulpice church (not for the obvious silly DaVinci Code fanatic stupidities, but merely to see some good old 18th century architecture).

Lunch at Brasserie Lipp on Boulevard St Germain, not far from the famous café Deux Magots, where intelligentsia meets crowded mass tourism.

    Love your photos- they only add to the desire to visit, as if I needed another!

    I love the photos. I think I've been to that cafe on my last trip to Paris. I love your blog.

    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
