Un Américain à Paris


Paris is beautiful. And our week-long vacation, as fabulous as it was, really only whet my appetite. There is so much to see and do —I could have spent a solid week in the Louvre alone, or the gardens at Versailles, not to mention the many things we missed, such as touring St. Chapelle and seeing more of the Marais.

Of the things we did see, the highlights were the Louvre, the Luxembourg garden, the Rodin museum, and the Montmartre area. But as nice as all of those were, my favorite part of the vacation was just wandering around the streets of Paris, soaking up the sights and sounds, and stopping in random cafes for a carafe of Medoc or Pouilly Fuisse before rambling down another side street.

Enjoy the pictures.
