In Love With An Iron Lady

I have been in Paris for over 11 years now. Wow. It seems so long to me. And no matter how many times I go to see the Eiffel Tower, I always always take a picture of her. She is beautiful.

Pretty Paris Carnival Pictures

Chéri and I went out to play on the last day of the carnival at the Grand Palais. It was a sugar-coated-colorful afternoon of playful diversion from daily life.

Monuments off the beaten path – Remnants of the wall of Philippe Auguste

Although you’ll want to check off the major Paris attractions from the old bucket list when in the French capital, be sure to save some time for the less notorious landmarks too, which unlike the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, aren’t packed with trails of tourists.
