Photo du Jour - A Quiet, Shady Spot


Walking down une rue piétonne* in Béziers the other day, I noticed that a pair of huge doors into an old, Haussmann style building's central courtyard were open. I quietly wandered in and found this quiet and verdant spot.

What is a Haussmann style building? It looks so warm and cozy...which I was there too.

Baron Haussmann was a French civil planner who changed the face of Paris in the 1800's.
Have a look;
