Back from Paris!


eiffel-towerI’d forgotten how truly beautiful this city is. Magnificent views of Sacré-Coeur Basilica from one of our windows, and a southern vista from another.

Ran ourselves ragged visiting museums, the Palais Garnier opera house (no Phantom in sight), Père Lachaise Cemetery (graves of Chopin, Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Colette, Oscar Wilde, Marcel Pr0ust, Molière, Maria Callas, Rossini). Even Paris’s sewers.

Now we’re nursing colds at home. But it was well worth the coughs and the sniffles.
