At this 17th-century church—the
second-largest in Paris—you
can see something
everywhere you look.

Have learned to like the inside-out Pompidou,
but don't get me started about the
hideous Tour Montparnasse (I cried the first 

time I saw it).  However, I've always 
loved Pei's pyramids—how about you?

ABC Wednesday—Q = "quai"

. . . de la Tournelle, that is.  Can you
imagine a more romantic place to stroll—
or a more fantastic view?

{I'm scheduling this to post, but I might not be able
to link back to ABC Wednesday.  At the
moment I'm on a ship off the coast of Argentina,
and may or may not have any Internet.}

Les ombres du Louvre

I appreciate that these sumptuous carpets
and gorgeous painted dressers are
still here for us to admire.
The chairs aren't too shabby, either.

aux puces

I could spend days at the Marché aux Puces,
even if I were just looking—though
buying (and haggling over the price) is more fun.
I was tempted by this pretty silver pot
the last time I was there.

dans le métro

Every time I'm in Paris, I find an ad
(or two or three) that makes
me smile, or frown, or shake my head
—or all three.

and Our World Tuesday.]

c'est triste

It makes me so sad to see what's happened
to some of the gravesites at Paris's
most famous cemetery, Père Lachaise.
