  1. Hmmmm…I can’t say exactly, but I will guess it is somewhere near Chatalet metro area. Near Tour St. Jaques. It’s like a theater or something like that. Completely off base?

  2. It is le Téâtre de la Ville (built by Haussman)!!!

    So hungry for a Chupa Chups!

      Congratulations and keep up the good work!

  3. It is at Place du Châtelet — tricky how you covered up the name on the building!

    • Yes, I did, but now I’m going to put the original photo back; the photo looks better with the name on it!

    Ahh! I knew this one – Theatre de la Ville, thanks to the useful Sarah Thingy café! But now I see I’m comment 8 I won’t bother! I’ll be faster next time I know one, so I can get that second CC badge!

    • Yeah, I have the feeling people were hanging out by my virtual doorstep, waiting for the ‘post’ to be delivered. Anyway, someone with your breadth of knowledge about all things Parisian…it’s just a matter of time before you access the next level!

      See you in the streets, Sab,

  6. Mille mercis, Paul! Can you tell me the location of the Metro on Laurent’s post (Daily Photo in Paris)? The “label” line says 5ème. Hummmm…? I am just curious.
    “Hi” to Karin also!

  7. *waves at Genie*
    Here’s a photo of the Sarah Thingy Café:

    (and in case the embed code does not work in comments, the link: Sarah B Photo)

    Genie – about your question. I found the post,, and then I looked this info up on Wikipedia about the 5th. These are the stops:

    “Line 7 connects the 5th with the 1st, 4th, and 13th, stopping at Jussieu, Monge and Censier/Daubenton.

    Line 10 cuts east-west across the northern and most touristed part of the arrondissement stopping at Cluny/la Sorbonne, Maubert/Mutualité, Cardinal Lemoine, and Jussieu with terminus just east of the 5th’s border with the 13th at Gare d’Austerlitz.”

    It has to be one of those if it is in the 5th. I was spending a little time checking out Google Maps on Street View to see if I could find it, but so far, no dice.

    • I found it! It is Métro Monge!

      Have a great Paris day!

      • Thanks so much for getting back to us, Genie; this was driving us NUTS!

  8. Thanks for your help with this one. I am glad that there are others who are driven crazy to find a certain spot they remembered, a particular garden or courtyard, or simply a Métro stop.

    Have a great weeekend!
