Paris, France home

In April 2004 I went with Wini and her daughter, Diane, on a long trip from Maine to Paris, France.

I couldn't see anything on the plane, since I was packed in the luggage.  But I nearly fell out when one bag was opened and examined by the security agent.  He looked all through the contents, and Diane could hardly get it closed again.

We stayed near the Sacré-Coeur, a beautiful white church in the Montmartre section of Paris.  Wini wanted to stay in Montmartre since so many artists had lived here in the past.

At the foot of the church steps was a colorful carousel, with bright painted horses.  All the little children were getting rides, the day my picture was taken.

Another day we stopped on the bridge, Pont Alexandre III, named after a Russian prince.  There are many statues on the bridge, and decorations covered with shiny gold.

Wini made a special Parisian outfit for me.

In the distance we could see the Eiffel Tower, Wini called it the icon of Paris.  The tower was built in 1889 for the World's Fair.

Many parks have fountains; this one, the Fontaine du Palmier, had unusual decorations and was on the way to the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral.
The Arc de Triomphe, another Paris landmark.
