Rue Mouffetard at Night

Our neighborhood is bustling during the day. There’s a primary school and during recess the cries, shouts, laughs, and yelling of children echoes off all the buildings. There’s a couple of universities within a stone’s throw as well as a resto U or student cafeteria. And just beyond all of that is the Rue Mouffetard – bustling street of shops, cafés, produce markets, boulangeries, boucheries, and more. While a lot of locals shop here, it’s also a tourist destination so it’s really busy. The main street is usually crowded with leisurely strolling people, munching on a crépe or kebab. It’s a great street.

At night it’s a completely different story.

All buttoned up, still, and yet welcoming.
