Mozart lived there
I love it when I walk down a street in Paris and suddenly see a plaque on the wall saying "This writer/singer/composer... lived in this building in XXXX". The latest one I saw - and obviously photographed - was the one of Mozart who came to Paris for the first time in 1763 with his father (he was 7 at the time). It's located in the Hotel de Beauvais a magnificent building that was completed in 1656 and that you absolutely have to see if you happen to pass by the 68 rue Francois Miron in the 4th arrondissement. PS: don't forget next week's picnic!
