Still in Paris

With Lorette and Mimi in the gardens of the Palais Royale - or is it the Tuileries?! We went to both anyway.

View of the Eiffel Tower from the Pompidou Centre

Shop window selling shoes and ballet items near the Place Vendome.

Still enjoying our Paris sojourn and I don't think I've done so much walking for a long time. Had a lovely walk all round the Louvre area with Lorette and Mimi two stagiaires of mine who live in Paris and who have become good friends. Last night we went for dinner chez Marie-Noel another Parisien stagiaire. Lovely 11th floor flat she lives in with views towards La Defense.
Here are a couple more pictures.

In Paris

The Tuilleries by the Louvre and the Orangerie - having embroidered several aspects of these gardens they are quite special to me.

This is St Chapelle completely built it seems of huge stained glass windows - quite breathtaking.

We're on holiday now and enjoying our 'swap' appartment. We walk a great deal looking at things but having a fairly quiet day today with a concert on the Quay d'Orsay at 5.oopm. Here are some photos of one or two places visited.

Nous sommes en vacance à Paris et pendant beaucoup de promenades j'ai fait des photos bien sûr et voilà deux d'eux
