Rue Mouffetard and Place de la Contrescarpe

After Notre-Dame and Sainte-Chapelle we went to Place de Rue Mouffetard and Place de la Contrescarpe, another nice busy section of Paris in the Vth. Lots of restaurants of course. We passed an ancient Vespa and then nearby there was a set of electric car charging stations.

After that we went to the nearby Jardin des Plantes. As in many places in France there were various educational exhibits scattered about - about erosion, and another one about bees - with a sign saying that all wild bees are welcome in the hotel.
