Scenes from Paris
View from the Eiffel Tower at night
The Eiffel Tower at dusk
Muguet de Bois; sold all over the streets on Labor Day (May Day); apparently the only day street sellers can sell without being assessed by the government
A march on Labour Day
Madame Royal's defaced picture in the midst of presidential elections
One of the older Metro stations at Abbesses; to come up from it, one needs to climb a tiring number of stairs in a circular formation. There is an elevator available: word to the wise-use it.
One of my favorite memories: a mother duck herding her ten ducklings down the steps near the Jardins Tulieres. She created quite a scene as everyone stopped to watch their progress.
Sacré-Coeur at Montmartre, the highest hill in Paris.
