These two girls looked totally absorbed in their drama of the moment, which, I imagined, was about their boyfriends.
Paris cafes are a great place to do people watching, as well as rest your feet after a day of touristy activities. I love coffee, but in France if you order "un cafe, s'il vous plait." you get an espresso. It's wonderful and strong, but those cups are so tiny, I feel gypped out of my coffee enjoyment. So, in the afternoon I order a cafe au lait, half coffee half milk, and at least you get a good-sized cup. The French frown on ordering it in the afternoon--they only drink it with breakfast--but I don't care.
