A few days in Paris - April 2008

View from Sacre Coeur, Montmartre over Paris. As you can see the weather was great.
Had a great few days in Paris in April. I had not been before although I have been to other areas of France and really loved it. Would really love to go back again.

How to advertise!!

Le Grand Bistro, where we had dinner. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
And really delicious Cotes Du Rhone wine with dinner!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A view of Notre Dame Cathedral in the beautiful evening sun.

Funky fashion just inside the door of Galerie Lafayette
On Sunday morning we wandered down to the the area known as the 'Marais'. Lovely little streets and plenty of little shops open too. In the Place des Vosges there were a number of little Arty shops and I was really fascinated to see these wonderful sculptures in one of them. You may have to click the picture larger to really see them.
La Tour Eiffel at night (obviously) but when the lights all dance on the hour. Really lovely sight.
Another night view of the Tour.

A little vineyard hidden down at the back of the Sacre Coeur.

And more funky fashion.
Overall I would recommend Paris for a great break away. I did root out the shop La Drougerie, and would you believe!!!!!!!!!! I also bought some yarn. Will post pictures later, as I have not taken any yet.
