Paris (part 2)

"Lorsque je voyage, je ne découvre pas; plus étonnamment, je retrouve. Non pas que je connaisse les choses que je vois, mais, en moi, elles se reconnaissent et résonnent."
-Serge Lutens

Something to listen to while you peruse...

Sacré Cœur

The sun came out, just for me!

In the squares around Sacré Cœur.
"Nous les artistes anonymes
De la sculpture ou de la rime
Tenterons de vous la transcrire
Pour les siécles à venir"
Where I got my mom's painting. And the Artist!
Forgot to take a picture of it, but it was of Notre Dame. (Naturally)

"Pierre après pierre, jour après jour
De siècle en siècle avec amour
Il a vu s'élever les tours
Qu'il avait bâties de ses mains"

An Art School!

L'Hôtel national des Invalides

Flea Market

Best Chili!

Fun Fact:
In Canada: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
In France: le petit déjeuner, le déjeuner, Le dîner

In Belgium: Le déjeuner, Le dîner, la soupé 

Getting closer...

Bisous pour la Tour Eiffel 

Almost at the top

Christmas-music-dance-party while waiting in the cold to get to the summit

La Seine

Lookin' pensive on the top of the Eiffel Tower


No Vancouver...
But we have Montreal!

Austrian Love

McDonalds being all classy

Centre Pompidou

All the hippies and hipsters sitting on the floor stylin' the place up,
and getting their street cred.
But in all seriousness, loved it here with all the artsy folk.
Saw a few American Apparel bags come through... instant connection.

The Back


In a church

"Look Tess- American Apparel!"
Yep. They know me too well.

Yaaaaaaay Peinguins.
Their heads move, but unfortunately this isn't The Daily Prophet so I have to tell you.

Most awe inspiring moment of my life. Honestly. I can't imagine any architecture is better.

The clouds aren't actually red... I was having a little fun with the photo editor.

The sparkles are pretty for 5 minutes.
Once you've seen them once it just seems a little tacky.

Ice skating and Christmas Market below

Escargot! Yum Yum!


Best Mousse Ever! (I've said that a lot)

La Grande Arche de la Défense or "the new arc de triomphe"

American Apparel is in that mall... yeeeeessss....

Still in line

"Give it to the Birds"

"The Birds"

McDonalds classin' it up.

Paris always surprises me.

Last french meal was actually Italien.
Seafood pasta. The balsamic was killer. And of coarse the rest as well.
