Directly across the river, near the city's western edge, is the onzieme, or eleventh district. It is the Paris of the working class, the Bastille, the Revolution, and the barricades.
Retracing my steps into the rue Monge and turning into the rue Cardinal Lemoine, I find my way to the Seine. There is a magnificent view of the river and its traffic near L'Ile de la Cite as I cross the pont de Sully. The Bastille's Colonne de Juillet, crowned with its golden "genius of liberty," is in sight.
Lost in my thoughts, I follow the sun's arch toward the river through the Marais district. In the rue des Barres near the Eglise St. Gervais, three nuns emerge from a side door after evening mass. People have filled the tables in the square next to an unpretentious restaurant. I have the surreal feeling of walking through a village in the French provinces. A few minutes more and I reach the quai des Celestins. The cathedral of Notre Dame towers above the skyline. I have come full circle to the center of Paris.
The piece de resistance of my circumambulation of Paris is viewing the Seine at sunset. I gaze upon the river and all that drifts in its wake and clings to its banks. Paris begins and ends as a village in the Seine. After the first inhabitants found refuge here in pre-Christian times, the Romans came to conquer. Notre Dame, the first great cathedral, was raised as a symbol of the church's supremacy, along the Seine, and the French royal palace--the Louvre--was built nearby as the precursor to Versailles and even greater political power.
Parisians fought over the awfulness of the brilliantly colored, intestinal-looking tubes of the Museum of Modern Art (the Pompidou) in the belly of the Marais in the early 1980s. They fought, too, in the 1880s over the "temporary" tower built by Gustave Eiffel. In 1889, the Eiffel Tower was the scandal of le tout Paris when it went up along the Seine. Yet, there is no more enduring symbol of the City of Light.
