The Personalities of Paris

(an abbreviated list in photos)

Two weeks ago, we spent three nights in Paris and stayed at small hotel in the Tuileries area.  It was a fantastic area in a fantastic city.  (Was it Audrey Hepburn who said that Paris is always a good idea?  Absolutely right!)

Paris is many things in the summer:  the city of light; a banquet spread over a city-width of streets;  a rock concert moshpit ;  and a beautiful stroll.

At the Louvre--is that the Mona Lisa or Mick Jagger? Am I in a moshpit or museum?

In the weeks ahead, and when time allows, I’ll take you more in depth into some of our favorite bits of Paris.  Until then, à bientôt! (See you soon!)
