Week Two – Day 12 - Bastille
Today we visited the 12ème arrondissement, specifically Le Viaduc des Arts, and the Marche d’Aligre.
The City of Paris, initiated in 1983 and inaugurated in 1993, this ambitious project of maintaining the old SNCF Viaduc vaults (7 hectares between Bastille and Reuilly) and creating a promenade on top.
After walking the shops on street level and the promenade on top we went to the Marché d’Aligre (Rue d’Aligre, Mardi au dimanche, 7h à 14h), and the Marché couvert Beauvau, (Place d’Aligre). We got there at the end of the Marche but were able to buy enough for dinner. We also visited a health food store in the area, and bought some sardines from a poissonnier.
Was going to go to Mirella Rosner’s show tonight at Théâtre du Lierre
22, rue du Chevaleret 75013 but it’s raining and I’m tired. We can go tomorrow night. I want to cook a curry dinner with the vegetables I bought today.I'll post my photos later tonight.
