Miscellaneous Paris

  • For me, Paris lived up to the hype which is absurd considering how hyped it is. I used to think I wouldn't go to Paris because of the hype, but that would have been a mistake.
  • I watched Midnight in Paris in Paris which I really enjoyed. If I could go back to a different time in Paris I'm not sure when I'd go back to, but it would definitely be to a time before the pollution that got me sick existed. There are too many cars in that city.
  • If you've never seen a woman in business dress and high heels riding a motorcycle to work, you have not seen all there is to see.
  • Paris has a lot of attractions that people are familiar with, but for me the best part was experiencing and observing the Parisian lifestyle.

Sunset on the Seine

Night shot of that tower

Most of my night pictures came out crappy like this one, but I decided to post this one since it's almost crappy in an artsy way.

Bastille Monument

Sometimes I wonder whether artists like Michelangelo and Raphael look down and scream, "What the $&#@ do they see in that thing?  That jerk only painted like three things anyway."

Greek Kissing

The Red Windmill

Vineyards producing pollution wine

Church in Montemarte

Skateboard ramp into Paris (not really)

I'll never tell.  Kidding - south of Jardin des Plantes

Parisian couple

Really good onion soup
