My husband and I love to do this when we are in Paris or anywhere in France
My Husband especially LOVES to People Watch ....he photographs them and sometimes I think will get a negative attitude from the passers by, but he hasn't ..yet !!!
See the direction all those chairs are facing? They’re not set up so that people can sit across from each other, sharing a chat over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
They’re set up spectator-style so that each person gets to stare at passers-by.
Oh, sure, you could move the chairs around if you wanted to when you sat down, creating a more conversation-friendly environment, but in Paris that’s just not done.
People sit at the tables, side by side, and enjoy the excellent people watching

I met you at Cafe Les Deux Magots
A beautiful sunny morning in Paris
Me...The american man in a foreign land
You...The belle of the island.
We talked and spoke of life and love
You took my hand ......
Cafe Les Deux Magots
An open air market in the fashionable Montmartre district ...now not so artsy these days, it's full of back packers and too many tourists ..I am a tourist but prefer to do what the locals do ...I don't like commercial places
So casual but so chic...love it all ..don't you ??
I wonder what this beauty is thinking with her fingerless texting gloves on ..is she waiting for a text or thinking what she should say in her text ??
Scrambling through the mountains of treasures in this shop (to the right ) is very fun to do ..never know what you will find ..French treasures galore
A street artist draws a young girl with the loveliest Red French Beret ..
I love this photo the woman looks so happy and relaxed and oh so Parisian with glossy magazine in hand ..love the spots and stripes ......so chic !!
Espérons que vous avez apprécié votre matin, les gens nous regardent avec chic Paris
In other words ...
Hope you enjoyed your morning out people watching with us in Chic Paris
Are these men
Discussing a painting ?
Having a disagreement ?
Discussing Politics of the day ?
Bartering over a piece of art ?
Will we ever know ? ...guess not !!
