We commented several times on the lack of mimes on this visit. We only saw one mime and she was in Versailles. We’ve never before been to Montmartre without seeing at least one mime and often several. But this time we saw none up there. Is it a dying art? I certainly hope not. It’s a real mystery. On the other hand, there seems to be no shortage of the other usual street performers, especially on the pedestrian bridge between our island and the island that Notre Dame is on. It’s just constant entertainment and we love it. They really make Paris feel like . . . well, Paris.
