. “I may disappear leaving behind me no worldly possessions - just a few old socks and love letters, and my windows overlooking Notre-Dame for all of you to enjoy, and my little rag and bone shop of the heart whose motto is 'Be not inhospitable to strangers lest they be angels in disguise.'" ― George Whitman . Paris Stories #4 . One of my favorite places in Paris is Shakespeare & Company, an English language bookstore overlooking Notre-Dame. Opened in 1951 by American expat George Whitman, visitors cram into the warren of rooms filled floor to ceiling with bookshelves. . In 2001 Cradoc and I showed up at the bookstore for one of its free weekly events - a reading by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, a poet and co-owner of City Lights Bookstore in San Fransisco. But he mixed up dates and had showed up a month earlier. Instead, a young couple did a dance performance outside that involved stilts and hanging upside down in a tree (go to cradocphoto.com to see the photos). After the performance we were invited upstairs to George’s private quarters to share a meal with the current Tumbleweeds, George’s name for an ever changing caste of young people who slept next to the piles of books in exchange for a few hours of work - sometimes for a night, sometimes for years. Community was important to George - he referred to his shop as a “socialist utopia masquerading as a bookstore.” . George’s daughter, Sylvia Whitman, has run the bookstore since 2002. Last week Cradoc showed Sylvia the photos he took of George and the dance performance from 2001. “The shop looks cleaned up since you took over,” Cradoc said. “Yes, my father used to put pancake mix under the rugs to keep them from slipping. We don’t do that anymore.” I mentioned how I love to watch the Youtube video of George’s method of cutting his hair (it involves a candle and flame). “I showed that video to my five year old son,” Sylvia said. “I thought he’d laugh. But he was mortified.” . George passed away in 2011 at 98. The poet W.B. Yeats words, Be not inhospitable to strangers lest they be angels in disguise,’ are written over one of the doorways in the bookstore. A reminder to all that George Whitman was one of those angels.

. “There is but one Paris and however hard living may be here, and if it became worse and harder even - the French air clears up the brain and does good - a world of good.” - Vincent Van Gogh . Paris Stories Part 3 . Last week in Paris I walked for hours each day in lovely September weather. Around every corner another beautiful church, or building, or view of the River Seine came into view. Since I was last there eighteen years ago Paris has changed into a more cosmopolitan city. In the historic center of Paris there were: Less car horns honking and more bike paths. Less dog poop on the sidewalks - actually no dog poop at all. More ethnic and vegetarian restaurants. More locals of all ages spoke English - willingly. Better customer service in shops.(There was no repeat of the daily scene at the boulangerie in 2001 where the young woman behind the counter refused to sell me the bread until I pronounced “une baguette au sésame” perfectly.) . The historic center of Paris, virtually untouched since WW2, is it’s own best museum. No contemporary architecture reminds the visitor that time has moved on - except for a few controversial high rise buildings outside the center which now mar the perfect Parisian skyline. . The city of Paris has become too expensive to live in. There was no more dog poop because all the old women with their little dogs had been pushed out. Now the sidewalks were covered with tourists in Paris for a few hours, or days, or maybe a week. Those new ethnic restaurants replaced many traditional brassieres. There were more souvenir shops and chain stores. There was far more security around - well everything. . How can Paris grow under its current restraints and still maintain its magnificence? The City of Light still shown brightly, but there was a kind of silent soul sadness that lingered in the air, like the historic city center was covered with a bell jar. . I looked up the definition of bell jar and it seems to fit my feelings about Paris perfectly: “A cylindrical glass vessel with a rounded top and an open base, used to protect and display fragile objects or to establish a vacuum or a controlled atmosphere in scientific experiments.” .

Travelling home from Ōpōtiki I took a side road, Kutarere Wharf Rd, till I come to what I assume is the old wharf a short distance away down a private road. I later Googled it and learned what I saw was actually a causeway jutting out into the harbour. The wharf once stood at the end of the causeway and was a very busy place in the days before the roads went in. #Hipstamatic #ErieGL #Robusta #Apollo

Idiazabal . I’m not sure that I agree. It was “rico” but I do miss British cheese sometimes. I can get hold of mature cheddar in Lidl, but that’s about it. . #idiazabal #paisvasco #basquecountry #idiazabalcheese #queso #museodequeso #oveja #hikingwithfriends #caminodesantiago #nosomosperegrinos #almuerzo #lunchstop #txakoli #croquetas #patatasbravas #artofmobile #hidden_igers #daily_squaregraph #hipstaoftheday #hipstography #hipstagram #hipstahub #hipstadreamers #hipstamaticworld #hipstamaticmagic #hipstamaticaddicts #hipsta_crazy #hipsta_junky #hipstamatic (Helga Viking lens + Robusta film + Jolly Rainbo 2X flash)
