eurotrip part deux
We had a pleasant three-hour train ride from Amsterdam to Paris. I tried my darnedest to get quaint French county-side pictures. I was trying to get the cute little town with the church and its chapel. Out of god-knows-how-many-picture-attempts, I maybe managed to get a few decent ones.
Arriving at our Paris home, we were met by the house manager, Mr. Marcel. What a delight he was! He manages the apartment for the French owners, who live, coincidentally, in New York City. Mr. Marcel is a spry, charming 82-year-old who showed us the whole house which consisted of four floors, 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, and a roof terrace – a HUGE place for 3 ladies. He was very helpful in telling us where to go in the neighborhood and how to get around. On our departure, he called us a cab and saw us off.
Cimetière du Montparnasse (gorgeous, peaceful cemetery with really pretty and ornate mausoleums)
Jardin du Luxembourg
Cathédrale Notre Dame
La Seine (right before the torrential downpour)
Château de Versailles
Champs-Éysées & Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile
Those are pics from the first two days in Paris. I took over 1000 pics in France. It’s such a beautiful city and my photo skills don’t do it justice.
Next up: the last few days of Paris.
