The Marais is an interesting neighborhood in Paris. Marais means marecage in English, or to be less polite, it means a swamp. You would never think it would become the most fashionable neighborhood in Paris.
The view of the Tour St. Jacques is taken from the Rue St. Martin, one block away from our home on Rue Pernelle. The music is from a Naxos album of classical music which features eastern European artists. There are 36 selections, chosen randomly.
