More Public Art

There were two more murals on my list of public art and today we managed to see both of them.  The first one is by Shepard Fairey, the artist who did the Obama Hope poster.

The second one is near the Pompidou Centre and is by Jef Aerosol.  It stands across from the gothic Church of St. Merri.  Interesting contrast, isn't it?

Several years ago our son recommended La Tartine, a wine bar near the Marais district.  We liked it as much as he does and we usually eat there at least once each time we come to Paris.  Ordinarily we get charcuterie or a cheese plate and today Bill got a mixed plate with both charcuterie and cheese.  We were early enough that the lunch specials were still available, so I had steak frites, which was one of the specials.  It was a delicious lunch.
