The lovely lady on the left is Hortense's bartender. We met her later in the evening. La Belle Hortense is a mixed bookstore, bar, gallery and music venue.
It's Saturday night in Paris where the people-watching is some of the best on Earth.
Many couples stopped to have one partner's picture taken in front of our bar. When we sat down, Bill and I didn't realize we were sitting somewhere famous. We just thought it looked very cool.
At one point our waiter straightened up some of the bicycles parked outside and then plopped himself down in one of the seats.
We fell in love with Paris all over again.
