I had come to Montmartre for three reasons. Reason #1: I heard there was a good, cheap thrift shop, and there was. I got a number of shirts that I still wear, thinking of Paris each time I do. Reason #2: I wanted to visit the cemetery and pay tribute to the late François Truffaut, which I did. And I was not alone in doing so. Reason #3: I wanted to visit the Abbesses neighborhood where the charming film Amélie take place. And here it is, just as the snow started to fall.
