Last year, I spent a beautiful hot autumn week in Paris with a friend. We walked everywhere, drank wine in the avenues, were serenaded by street vendors, ate too much French pastry, and generally just had a fabulous time. Over six months later, I'm finally pasting the photos from that trip.
Garden just outside the Louvre

|Hey! I'm posing here...|
|Bridge with a zillion locks latched to the railing |
& the names or words of lovers inscribed on them.
|A couple taking wedding photographs on the romantic bridge, |
hoping their romance will last, just like the hundreds of others
who latched their inscribed locks to the bridge.

|Writing from my temporary balcony overlooking Rue Blondel.|
|Below my writer's aerie, ladies of the early morning ply their trade.|
|One of many couples kissing all over the city.|
|Waiting on my friend, Annette, to finish admiring the Arc de Triomphe .|
|Catching sight of the Eiffel Tower as I cross the bridge.|
|My first croissant, but definitely not my last.|
