Ahhh, did you bring some of that Paris air home to us, who sat here waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting 'til you got home...

I believe I am still breathing in some Paris air, gims

Are you kidding, Lola??? No way would I ever cross that road! We always took the long way around, on the outside of the roundabout. But can you really call it a roundabout? Ladies, I have never seen such an unorganized mess that intersection is. Cars going sideways, backwards, forwards, moving from one unmarked lane to another, at least four lanes away in one quick move. I even closed my eyes when the taxi driver went around the arc. Our seatbelts were always on tight, tight, tight.

Anno,
How glad I am 2 hear U had a great time. Tell Dennis hello and I'm happy that both of U enjoyed the trip. Loved the picture; looking forward 2 seeing more pics. I've never been to Paris but have been to Vicenza, Italy. Italians drive crazy, 2. I don't think any of them stay within a specified speed limit.
Prayers & blessings,

We went to almost all of the art museums. Dennis loved this, because in Paris, if you are using a wheel chair, you and one other person are allowed to cut to the front of the line and get in free! Dennis was in cheapster heaven.

And, we were able to get in front of the rope to see the Mona Lisa up close and personal. Cool.

Here is one of Napolean's rooms as seen from the Louvre



and just a few of Dega's ballerinas from the d'Orsay


The d'Orsay was our favorite, but the Louvre was extremely impressive.

I am so happy that Dennis got the "royal treatment."

I got to visit a museum with my mother too. There are some fantastic museums in Muenich. You got me going!
Great photos Anne. Love Dega's ballet figures. I thought he just painted them! Gee,learn something new every day.

Degas's ballerinas were one of my highlights. And so many of some of my all time favorites, Van Gogh, Matisse, Renior, and Monet....sigh...Monet, what that man could do with paint...sigh....opps, sorry, I just went into dream land for a second or two

I will be happy to share anything you want, but I really hate boring people with pics. It's one of my pet peeves. I think it goes back to those dreaded Sunday night slide shows when we were kids.

I'll go and see if I can find something else you might enjoy.

We were at the Pompidou Museum when I looked out the window and saw this view. I knew why Lola suggested we go see the Sacre-Couer. Later, we did.
