The souvenir shop from across the street ...
So this is not old Paris
But I took a detour.
This is Lourdes, a small highly religious (catholic) province of France
Pas surprising ... when there are rows and rows of souvenir shops, lined with wines, cheeses and meat products made in or around this picturesque town, not to mention clothes and religious items.
Lourdes is highly influenced by it's proximity to Spain, it's Basque heritage and the indirect influence from 'Il Vaticano"
Nevertheless the trip was unforgettable, six hours from Paris and it's a whole new world..
Chic, n'est pas?
