I WISH WE COULD ESCAPE TO PARIS

But since we can’t, you can go there yourself with this slideshow from my last trip in 2005. You may have to enable popups to view it on YouTube.
There are many postcard sights you won’t see in this collection, but you will find some favorites as well as some out-of the way places. See if you recognize Notre Dame, Place St. Michel, Tuilleries, St. Germain, the Marais, Orsay, the Louvre, Père LaChaise, Montmartre and Sacré Coeur, Hotel de Ville, Moulin de la Galette, Place des Abbesses, Les Invalides and the tomb of Napoleon, the Conciergerie, St. Germain l’Auxerrois, Musée Cluny, Rue Rivoli, Jardin du Luxembourg, Place République, Brasserie Jenny, Pompidou, La Coupole, Sainte Chapelle, Versailles, the quais of the Seine, Galléries Lafayette, many shop windows, and street scenes, among others. it’s a stroll through the city and Versailles from early morning until early evening on a day that turned snowy and chilly, not too different from the weather today.
Better yet, take your own trip and make your own slide show. You owe it to yourself.
The music is Herbie Hancock’s version of Gershwin’s Lullaby.
I hope you enjoy.
