Paris: A few more pictures, a few more memories

Patisserie wall from Samaritaine, Paris

Have you ever noticed this?  It’s on the wall of the former Samaritaine department store, now in the throes of a drastic renovation that will turn it into a hotel.  Simple and lovely, isn’t it?


And another beautiful sign, this one found on the side of the fabulous, not-to-be-missed bakery, Du Pain et Des Idees.  

Place de la Concorde, ParisAnd to finish, a shot taken from the 84 bus on a rainy afternoon (not that everyday wasn’t rainy on this trip!).  This is a small piece of La Place de la Concorde,  one of the most beautiful intersections in the city.  I was recently interviewed by Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland and I told a story that happened right here.  It’s one that touched me deeply and I think about it every time I’m at this glorious spot.  I hope you’ll read it and when you do, come back — I want to know what you think.
