#ridecolorfully #katespadeny #vespa Sitting in a park in Paris, France Reading the news and it sure looks bad They won't give peace a chance That was just a dream some of us had Still a lot of lands to see But I wouldn't want to stay here It's too old and cold and settled in its ways here Oh, but California California I'm coming home -- Joni Mitchell (Art by Samantha Hahn)
Le Procope is Paris' oldest cafe, dating back to the 1600s. Starting as a cafe where gentlemen would drink coffee, it became a popular meeting place for intellectuals--such as Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson-- throughout the 18th century. It was also a well known meeting place for French Revolutionaries.
