Looking back, i have spent most of my times in Paris in this one street. Rue Montorgueil in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris is charming and host all things french included : fromageries, boulangerie, bistrots, creperie, rotisserie, coordonier, fleuriste...
My earliest memory about this street was me as an intern dreaming to buy that 6€ frappes at Starbucks everyday like in the american films. And once i earn enough to have as many lattes and fraps as i want, i found out that i never wanted a cup anymore.
I love many things about this street ; I love how the color of the street turning from autumn light to sunny blue summer sky.
I cherish the memories created here. This particular bistro, Compas, where i used to grab a breakfast each Saturday morning to learn italian, drank spritz on Friday evening, or hot chocolate on a random morning to catch up with a friend.
I love all the parallels streets and how the commerces decorate their shops during the festive times.
