Paris Sorbonne Perch


This past week, while visiting Paris with my old friend (and recently published author) John Kortum*, we ended up (courtesy of John) sitting at an outdoor cafe - Cafe Tabac de la Sorbonne - located in a wonderfully shaded and quiet square near the Sorbonne. It is a perfect spot to relax, read or have a drink during any lazy, summer afternoon. We spent several unhurried hours at this cafe drinking beers, checking our internet messages, courtesy of the cafe's free internet, and chit-chatting.

This quaint square is named The Place de La Sorbonne and it's a popular hangout area for Sorbonne students and locals. The square is framed by several outdoor cafes on one side, the Sorbonne Church (Eglise De Sorbonne) and the Sorbonne university on the other. There are also several water fountains in the square and some book stores right across the cafes. Need I say more?

By the way, The Sorbonne houses the University of Paris which was founded around 1250 and The Pantheon (located right behind the Sorbonne), was a former church that was modeled after the Pantheon in Rome and St. Paul's in London. It is now a burial place of famous people.

Thanks John, for such a great find!

*By the way, John is the author of The Kortum Technique, a book that teaches us a new ways to identify future health problems in oneself and others.
