More Paris…

With all this talk of Paris I’ve been spewing this week (both here and in the Cafe Utne), I’ve got the Paris bug again, big time! I don’t think I’ll be going back any time soon (perhaps next spring), but this buzz has prompted me to scan some pictures I took there in May, such as this hazy view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe…

oooooooo!

…and this view of the lavish (garish?) Pont Alexandre III, which I mentioned in post a few days ago…

aaaaaaaahhh!

I took this during my evening boat ride on a bateau mouche. Loyal readers will recall that in my dispatches from Paris I mentioned how high the Siene was–so high the boat ride was truncated because we couldn’t fit under some of the bridges!
