Deux Pope à Paris 🙂
“I guess it goes to show that you just never know where life will take you. You search for answers. You wonder what it all means. You stumble, and you soar. And, if you’re lucky, you make it to Paris for a while.”
– Amy Thomas, Paris, My Sweet; A Year in the City of Light
I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. I sure have! My sister-in-law Tracey (my brother Doug’s wife) arrived on Saturday morning and over the past few days, we have seen enough magnificent architecture and stunningly beautiful art to knock a cow over backwards.
We’ve mastered the metro and become experts at choosing the best café in any given neighbourhood to sit and watch the world go by – glass of wine (or beer or cafe creme) in hand. The food, of course, is exquisite and the people-watching is fantastique!
We even spent some time with the, er, remains of people past – 6 million of them – when visiting the Catacombs far below the streets of Paris.
Here are a few more of my favourite pics of Paris so far:
We are off to the Louvre today 🙂
Oh and I am still getting some excellent writing done, just in case you’re concerned. Hah! What I do is get up early and write for about an hour every morning before we head out to wander the streets and see the sights (and eat more delectable delights). Très bon.
