It’s April in Paris, right now.  And it is a fine time to visit that most romantic of cities, but sometimes April there can dip down to the 40’s—sound familiar?  And, despite Yip Harburg’s lyrics, chestnuts in blossom don’t happen till May, and nobody is setting “holiday tables under the trees.”  In Luxembourg Gardens, blooms are starting to pop in April, and they have a bandstand there. However, choose May.

“I never knew the charm of spring
I never met it face to face
I never new my heart could sing
I never missed a warm embrace

Till April in Paris
Whom can I run to
What have you done to my heart”

This song, “April in Paris” was written by Yip Harburg and Vernon Duke for a 1932 Broadway show called, “Walk a Little Faster.”  Harburg also wrote the lyrics for “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”  So many have recorded “April in Paris,” but Count Basie made the most famous version.

The Marais District in Paris is a historic part of town. Victor Hugo used to live there, but we didn’t bump into Victor when we visited. I guess I was busy trying to figure out how to go down the stairs without having to go up the stairs.  French royalty liked that neighborhood including King Charles V who built his house there in 1361.  Do you think he had to submit the plans to the Paris HPC?

The Rue de Rosiers in the Marais is the Jewish district.  I can imagine King Charles or Victor Hugo strolling over to that neighborhood for a superior knish.   After eating there, Victor probably felt less miserable than before.

There was a deli (Goldenbergs) on the Rue de Rosiers where there were a couple of bullet holes still enshrined in the front window after some terrorists shot up the area in 1981.

We had  really great falafel  at the Rue de R. purchased out the window of a hole-in-the-wall eatery.  Sometimes, when you travel, it is the small moments that you recall most fondly.
