Août à Versailles V

Yesterday I showed you the ghost street in Montreuil neighbourhood. Thank goodness for the small convenience groceries!

Hier je vous montrais la rue fantôme à Montreuil. Heureusement qu'il reste les alimentations générales !

Oh, yes! What would we do without those! That one looks better than any of the ones here, though! The dog looks like my sons dog! Colorful shot, Ciel!

Luckily there are some Juilletistes in the neighborhood. ;)

Michelle said...

A nice shot. Are those two pals?

Randy said...

Nice looking produce and pup.

These little places are important in many neighborhoods, but I don't think I have ever been in one in the USA.

Oh, they remind me of the 'bodegas' or little delis in NYC! They're life savers too. I would love to browse those colorful shelves.

tu fais aussi tes courses en patinette ?

comme le chantait si bien "Le Procédé Guimard Delaunay" "heureusement il reste toujours un arabe d'ouvert"

"vous garderais bien à dîner
Mais j´ai vraiment rien à bouffer
A cette heure, tout est fermé
En plus, on est jour férié
Mais faut pas paniquer
Ça peut encore s´arranger

Pasque y a sûrement un Arabe d´ouvert

Un problème de pain?
- L´Arabe du coin
Une panne de vin?
- L´Arabe du coin
Un p´tit surgelé?
- L´Arabe d´à côté
Des cacahuètes grillées
- L´Arabe d´à côté
Une tablette de chocolat?
- L´Arabe d´en bas
Une boîte de choucroute?
- L´Arabe du bout
Une boîte de cassoulet?
- L´Arabe près du Crédit Lyonnais"

Looks like a colorful selection of fresh goods, a very nice capture of like in the city.

Birdman said...

Fresh fruit and veggies. Gotta love 'em!

Lowell said...

Well, that's better! I thought none of these places were open. Love the kid and the skateboard and the dog. Some things are the same the world over!

VP said...

You just reminded me that I have to do some shopping before Ferragosto!

goatman said...

Good things to eat, and a dog to pet. What more could one ask?
Nice blog . . .

@ Oakland DP: I'd guess France mostly, coasts and mountains, also Spain. I'm sure some of the luckier ones are roaming the streets of NYC (I know someone who is flying out today) or flying over the Grand Canyon!

Such a lovely scene Ciel, a boy and his dog...and only in France would you find a youngster looking to choose fruit instead of lollies haha!
