Boulevard Raspail

Posted on Updated on

During our first stay in Montparnasse, we stayed on Boulevard Raspail
(and we love this street)

We walked North one day and found our favorite Naturalia Health Food store

Eventually walked south to the Montparnasse Cemetery, not one of our favorites
very square and flat, except for the grave of our favorite Soutine

Further south toward Catacombs, which we have yet to visit
One of our favorite sprawling grocery stores, a vendor selling Oysters outside

On a side street is a good street market
We walked into a Boutique to buy the classic French Scarf (after misplacing our current scarf)
Very pleasant experience, tried on several scarfs of different materials. Always attracted to the wool scarfs. They weren’t busy, but they were patient, even showing me how to wear a “Paris” scarf. A long, wide, dark charcoal grey scarf. Maybe 35 Euros, not bad, a very satisfying purchase. Much later, I checked the label – Not Wool, some synthetic substitute (which is probably not a bad thing, because pure wool can be tricky and saggy and high maintenance.

Next morning, North up Boulevard Raspail into Paris. A wonderful boulevard for running. A central median and major market with early morning activity. Boulevard Raspail merges with Rue de Bac in Paris near Musee D’Orsay

We will return to Boulevard Resapail
