More Passy Walk and Delicious Italian Deli~ Missing Paris Day


We're back at the Cimetiere de Passy for another Walk in Paris.


Just a few more interesting tombs (or is that an oxymoron?), 
this one with the often-used phrase for those buried after World War I. 


And this one reminds me of the Annunciation,
of which I took a series of photos, while traveling across Europe,
for a friend who collected them. 


One frequently finds stone flowers and bouquets among live plants 
lovingly placed by friends and family who care for their tombs with meticulous detail. 


And my favorite. While I don't know exactly the patriarch's profession,
one can speculate. This is one of the most visually descriptive I've seen in tombs. 
**************

Just down from the cimetiere,
 off rue de Passy and Place de Passy
(which has a permanent covered market
from Tues-Sat, 8:30-1 & 4-7
and Sunday 8:30-1)
is rue de l'Annonciation
with one of our favorite Italian traiteur and deli's at #40. 

filled with cheese-stuffed peppers, marinated artichokes and pasta of all kinds,
is the perfect take-out stop before heading home or picnicking along the way. 
Picnicking being a favorite French past-time,
one can do it most anywhere,
in the park, along the highway, I mean anywhere.

Hope you enjoyed the last of this segment of Passy Cimetiere,
at least until you can see it for yourself!

I love to visit old cemeteries here in the states so I would be beside myself there in Paris. I have never been before but yearn to visit everything there....including the cemeteries. Thank you for the lovely images. Blessings, Lisa
