The “I Love You” Wall

Back in Paris….

There’s a small but lovely little garden park at the Place des Abbesses called Square Jehan-Rictus, in honour of a French poet who had died in the 1930s.  I’d never heard of it until one day I took a metro route I hadn’t used before, and exited at the Abbesses metro stop.

In 2000, two artists used the exterior of a building on the side of the park to create the “I Love You” wall, which is composed of 612 tiles inscribed with the phrase “I Love You” in 250 languages.

Across from the park is a church…

…which makes the “I Love You” wall a perfect setting for scenes like this:

Best Wishes to the Happy Couple!
