I can’t envision Paris without the Eiffel tower. I was surprised that it’s brown and not black. Anyone else?
I can’t imagine liking any museum more than I like the Musee d’Orsay.
This is the dining room of Napoleon III at the Louvre. Being as close as it is to Passover I couldn’t help but look at it and think how comfortably it would sit everyone, no bridge tables needed.
The large piece of furniture is Josephine’s jewellery box. It was given to Napoleon’s second wife upon their marriage. She had two matching cabinets built (on either side of the main jewellery box). It made me sad for Josephine.
She liked me, she really liked me. She smiled at me.
I took a ridiculous amount of pictures of buildings, but they’re just so beautiful.
Look at the shape of this! You know you’re not at home.
A charging station for electric cars. Neat.
While I’m not a Hemingway fan it was still neat to see one of his hangouts.
I couldn’t get the coffee thing straight. I ordered a cafe au lait thinking i”d get an oversized cup of creamy coffee, nope.
There is beauty in symmetry and La Place des Vosges exeplifies this perfectly. We tried to find Victor Hugo’s house here. We found the address but no sign of it having been his home. Oh well.
A more expansive view of the same bridge.
One of the bridges over the Seine. Can you guess the tradition?
The Metro. Not just a brand of ice cream also an extremely complicated subway system that makes the New York subway look pretty rinky dink.
Why it was so easy for me to get lost. Very few intersections seemed to consist of only four corners.
The Seine. So pretty.
I loved the Boutique Descartes. Great gifts for the kids, too bad I never managed to find it again when I was actually shopping. Sorry kids.
