I took this picture of l’Arc de Triomphe in 1995.
They beckon me; I will follow…

More Plans, more Travel…

OOH La la! The time has come to leave my troubles behind and FLY! Fly away to see what one can see! To shake it up and turn it upside down! The Muse, she beckons…

In just a little over a week, I am going to Paris! This fair city is my favorite of all outside the USA and I can’t wait. It’s been almost 10 years since I was there last and almost 4 years since I was lured overseas…

Too tempting the prospect of joining mes amis Becky et Jackie on a late Spring adventure in the City of Lights~! Paris – she is a spectacle that I hope will sweep me away!

Invigorating! Full of energy (watch out for scooters!), art and food extraordinaire! History and architecture that will make me weep with joy!

Paris…

I stayed there once before for two weeks in an apartment in Bastille. We went every day to the farmer’s market in the neighborhood to buy fresh food and flowers. Perhaps my favorite area is Marais (which you can see in yesterday’s entry) – it blends the very old (17th century?) with the very new and the continuity is astounding.

Paris…

Much of which Chicago is not. The two are sister cities, but one is the flip side of the metropolitan coin. We even have subway enclosures that are copies of their’s but you will never mistake their public transportation for ours. Theirs is Clean! It’s on Time! It’s accessible…

And the architecture! Much of Chicago was built roughly around the same time von Haussmann was tinkering with the Parisian skyline but we’ve neglected and abandoned our treasures. In the City of Lights, one will find people living in buildings that go back centuries and I marveled at the sight.

Paris…

Just the thing for a woman who does not tan! Will HE still be waiting for me outside Sacr
