What I Forgot About Paris

Concorde Metro stop

Touring Montmartre with Joseph and new friends.

Marcel Ayme wrote Le Passe-Muraille or The Walker-Through-Walls, which this statue commemorates.

Others think they can come through too.

Oh, go ahead.

The Moulin de la Goulette is in Montmartre and different from the Moulin Rouge. Both are in the lap dance section of Paris. Don't ask.

Christmas decs on the Champs Elysees.

Vive le France!!!

If you walk across the street and you are still alive, you see this.

And this.

Down the other end of the Champs. Actually, I can't remember what this was. I forced my daughter to pose for this.

The Obelisk on the Place de la Concorde where the guillotine stood. Pull your scarf a little tighter.

I look just like her, don't I?

entering the Louvre and marveling

In the Louvre competing with Mona.

Arkansas reunion at Luxembourg Gardens

Putting things into perspective.

Uncomfortable up in the Eiffel Tower

Finally, and how can you ever say finally, but here is my best picture. I think it is pretty good. My daughter is in it. Can you see her?

I am still in love.
A bientot,

Envy envy envy! I love those flying arch thingys on the back of ND -- if they're gutters they're much cooler than any aluminum contraption. It is a neat picture -- I wonder what they're looking at off to the right, the girl and the dog...

I also like that bitchin' ran-oh-cer-oh with the mischievous grin. But my favorite has to be the restaurant -- adorable!

Aren't photos great for recapturing the feeeeling! Lucky lucky you! And your daughter looks so like you Becky!
(Do you have plans to return? Recherche les moments!?)

They are not nearly as good as your photography skills, Kay, but thank you. I have no specific plans, but definitely I will return.
