Paris. Adventures on Foot. Random shots!

After the students left for St. Malo and Normandy, the three of us (daughter, Tracey, DIL, Katrina, and myself) had some free time to explore Paris on our own.

Eiffel Tower for closer encounters...

Eiffel Tower... we gawked at people... marveled at people's patience as they stood in very longgg lines to go up the tower... only one elevator was working.... us? no patience to stand in line...

The three of us - we talked other tourists into snapping this shot of us. Merci!

Then Notre Dame, crepes with Nutella ... and explored the area.

We found the Love Bridge... Yes, the one with all the locks! Pont de Arts. Lovers engrave or rather scratch their names or initials on the lock. Hook it up to the bridge and throw away the key in to The Seine. Romantic, eh?

Walked and browsed Les Bouquinistes (book stalls along the Seine) , found Shakespeare and Co., walked around the Latin Quarter to shop for gifts for some folks we love at home. :) Scarves, beret, or whatever else we took a fancy on.

We went to shop at Champs Elysees... mostly window shopped ... esp. at Louis Vuitton.

Inside LV ... stole a photo of Katrina before I got caught and was told " No Photos".

We wanted to have tea at LaDuree but that was under construction so we bought macarons. (More on food later.)

The girls found and H & M store and had a field day there.

I checked out this shoe store but could not get myself willing to part with my Euros...

180E for a pair of shoes? Ok, they were Italian shoes, but still! That was "ON SALE"... ouch! Oh perhaps another day. Or the next trip... There is always a next time.
