Wednesday, July 11, 2007

We awoke to a lovely Paris morning.

First, a walk up the hill with breakfast an a street-side shop. Then to the Pantheon and the Sorbonne (don't we have photos?). And then over to the Luxemburg Gardens.

We both just love tree-lined walks.

Linda was taken by this Italianate pool and sculpture garden. One of the Borgia queens had this erected to remind her of her roots.

We walked to the Louvre

and around with all the other tourists.

Tourism is a very old pursuit. People have travelled to the Holy Land, to new worlds, to China, to see what they could see. We embrace our inner outer tourist.

The Picasso Museum held wonderful treats:

We saw the bicycle seat/handlebar that looks like a bull's head. I'm sorry. No photo.

In the evening we got on the Metro and rode to Champs du Mars to view the sunset with le Tour Eifel. At first it looked like it was being underlit by the setting sun, but then we realized that spotlights were helping the illusion. Pretty nice even so.
