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.
