What We Saw in Paris
We got to see so many more things on this trip than we were able to on previous trips to Paris. It was my third trip, Joe’s second, and our first time on our own without a tour group. We took a bike tour, my third and his second again, and this one was “Off the Beaten Path.” New sights included the Church of Saint-Sulpice, the church that was started in 1646 and never quite finished; beautiful Parisian doors; all kinds of street artwork; Ar ènes de Lutèce, a 1st century Roman amphitheater in the Latin Quarter; and a legit Medieval building that possibly dates from the fourteenth century. Paris is the best place in the whole world.
I also finally got to set my sights on Moulin Rouge and Les Cafe des 2 Moulins from Amelie, which was closed. We also came across a hat that was supposedly worn by Napoleon! I wish I could say that I had a return trip booked already but I’ll just have to survive on the thousands of pictures I took while we were there. It also doesn’t help that currently it is 60’s and raining in Seattle while warm and sunny in Paris. C’est la vie.
