I’m B-A-A-C-K!

I spent seven very nice days in Paris. This was my first visit there, and I hope it won’t be my last.

Since my family and I were first-time visitors, we spent most of the time doing the usual tourist activities–the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Montmartre, Versailles. We also made it to the Museum of the Middle Ages (the Cluny), where I especially enjoyed getting to see what a portable altar looked like (very small and, thus, very portable), to Père-Lachaise cemetery, the Concierge, and to the Cathedral of Saint-Denis (burial place of most French kings, including Philip the Fair). I’ll be posting some more pictures later, but here’s a few odds and ends. First, our family, being people of taste and discernment, couldn’t resist this souvenir:

I was quite taken with this advertisement featuring a bespectacled bunny:

Paul Delaroche’s painting of the Princes in the Tower:

Ouch!

    Glad you had a good time in Paris. I live closer than you and I’ve never been! Sounds like a week wasn’t long enough though!
