After being pointed in the right direction, I walked along the streets more in a discovery mode rather than looking for something in particular. To be honest, I am not even sure if I got to see the highlights of Marais, but I definitely derived joy from my little mystery tour. Being lost in the moment (and in Paris !) felt just wonderful.

At around 3.20 pm my stomach announced that it was time for lunch and “Boulangerie” on Rue de la Verrerie looked like the right place.
To satisfy my intuitive feeling I decided to check out a local cafe at the southern end of my street (next to the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette).
My self advertising even scored me a happy birthday song for the upcoming day, now only a few hours away.
