Paris is everything I had hoped it would be. The city is ancient and vibrant. I find the challenge of finding my way around in a city I don't know speaking a language I barely know to be exhilerating. The top picture is us at the fountain of St. Michael, which all Parisians in the know meet up. Notice the finished Clapotis - it's been a great wrap for the chilly mornings and evenings and easy to carry around during the warm days. The next is of the windows in Notre Dame. The next is of my traveling companions trying to figure out where we are going. Then they are all smiles when they've got it.
