|Enjoying Paris. The picture was taken in front of the Louvre; the Jarden des Tuileries behind us.|
Some pictorial highlights of Paris:
|We found the coffee - I personally prefer cafe au lait made with espresso - a trip highlight. Cafes and restaurants brew individual cups with high-tech machines, the coffee served fresh, smelling wonderful and tasting delightful.|
|The River Seine runs through the heart of Paris.|
Tourist boats and local vessels line the banks. Crowds take advantage of walking and biking paths along the riverbank. Vendor stalls and special exhibits add to the mix.
|This picture was taken in the gardens at Giverny, Impressionist painter Claude Monet's home outside Paris. Employees maintain the house and gardens as much as possible exactly as it was when Monet lived and painted in his home studio.|
|Our favorite cafe.|
|The Louvre's main entrance and courtyard.|
|Streets are lined with small shops.|
|A picture of the Eiffel Tower is a must in any discussion of Paris. |
I love this picture taken in a park next to the Tower. Fall is a beautiful season anywhere!
