The 19th on The 19th

One of many locks on the canals in northeast Paris.


On July 19, 2018, we met Anne, who I know from blogging, at République, and she took us on a long walking tour of the 10th and 19th Arrondissements. This first series of photos goes up to the highest point at Temple de la Sybille in the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont (under the "A" in "ARR." on the map below). I include a wide-ange view and various telescopic views from the Temple.

Footbridge over the canal by a lock.


Hôtel du Nord used in a 1938 film of the same name.

Communist Party Headquarters


The courtyard of a hospital where Anne had been a patient.


Various buildings were in disrepair and had netting to keep pieces of the buildings from falling off.


Neighborhood along the way.


Living buildings with plants growing from roofs and balconies.


The Temple de la Sybille from another hill in the park.

Wide-ange view of Paris from north-northwest on the left to north-northeast on the right. The park was once a rock quarry.

Thanks, Couriers. The temps were very warm, but not super hot. Humidity wasn't bad.

Thanks, Harry!
What a glorious walking tour Anne took you on. Was it hot and humid? Paris can be interesting in the summer ;-)
