November in Paris turns the leaves brown, pulls the overcoats out of the armoire and puts red cheeks on the toddlers. Streetsellers roast chestnuts on corners, well behaved dogs in restos look up hopeful from under the table for a snack and my friend rolls blankets against the draft under her windows. Also time for catching Agnés Varda, film director and 'grandmother' of le nouvelle vague cinema, at her studio on rue Daguerre before the 84 year old rushes off to a film festival.

Leo says he's had his bookstore since '84 but won't say from what century. He will buy books by the pound and even sell them to you by the pound. Also it's time for Emilie, la chat, to be fed. Cara - Tuesday
