Home From Paris

Bonjour!  Miss Main Street and I are home from our trip to Paris.  We had a fabulous time!  I'll be back with a real post after some rest (and laundry), but in the meantime, here are some photos I took during our trip. 

The florists have beautiful displays on the sidewalk

Hot chocolate and macrons at Angelina's - a real caloric indulgence!

Smart cars and other tiny models are all over Paris, probably because of lack of parking space and cost of gas.  A large American SUV would look like a tank amongst Parisian cars.

Bouquinistes (second-hand book sellers, also sell prints and some other items), along the Seine

Arc de Triomphe

Underneath the Eiffel Tower

Miss Main Street in front of the Louvre.  The stone building in the background is the original; the glass pyramid is the I. M. Pei-designed addition, which lets in lots of light to the basement area.

One of Monet's water lily paintings at the Orangerie Museum. 

A bientot!
