The rain showed no sign of letting up, and the cafe at the museum didn't look too interesting, so we decided to go to Place de la Bastille for lunch since there are lots of restaurants very close to the Metro stop. As we were exiting we were treated to a 12-piece (approximately) orchestra playing for change. Again, I was unable to get all the musicians in the frame. We had salads again, mine with ham and Comté cheese, and Bill's a salad Niçoise.
The rain had stopped when we finished lunch, so our picturesque street of the day was Rue des Thermopyles in Montparnasse. Very charming. And we saw a flower unfamiliar to us. It almost looked like a stylized plastic flower. Can any of you identify it?
