Le Paradis Latin: A Paris Cabaret.

Le Paradis Latin: A Paris Cabaret Walking past in the middle of the day, you might never notice this switched-off sign or neon-less exterior tucked away on 28 Rue de Cardinal Lemoine on an unobtrusive street just near Paris’ student district.

Ending up in Edam

On about the third trip I made to take pictures of a tour to Marken and Volendam, I just couldn’t bring myself to get back on a bus and take more photos of more tourists at more windmills. With dark skies coming in over the Zuiderzee anyways, I set off for a short walk down … Continue reading »
