My son went to Paris to a then girlfriends home.I sent a gift.A Celtic cross made in pottery.Typically Scottish.
The Mother disliked crosses..she attends a church that says
this is uneccepatable.
The girlfriend was studying holistic medicine so they put it on a tomb in the cemetary you visited.
So if by chance.........a green Celtic cross laying on a Doctor's tomb..what a coincidence it would be,

The mask on the tomb

Is it possible that we all look our death mask in the face ?

Cool story, MA. I will look through my pictures and see if I find a cross. Now wouldn't that be something!

Anno, thank you so much for the pictures... some of us will never be able to visit Paris, or anywhere else as exciting. It makes it nice to see through another's adventures.

Even in photos, the Eiffel never fails to take my breath away, Anno. How on earth did you manage to take such a lovely photo of it from base to top? I envy your skill with the camera. Funny story: When my children were little, I tried to take a photo of them before it and could not manage the same shot as you have. A Frenchman tapped me on the shoulder and said, "Mon Dieu Madame, ze Eefel ees too high for your foto camera, better a postcard, eh?".

I was across the river, Lola. It's the only close-up I could get of the entire tower.

We saw the Eiffel first when we were in the taxi coming into Paris. Then we took a bus tour around Paris (my was that difficult with a chair!) and saw it again. We never did get up the Eiffel, the lines were intolerable. I also got a good picture from the Pompidou. I will post that, too.

At the top of the Eifel Tower they have a VIP restaurant,...in which I sneaked in because there was no other bathroom up there. And as Anno mentioned,…the line is forever long just to ride up the elevator.
At the restaurant, a door man actually took my arm and led me to the bathroom. I thought that was so hilarious. I can't remember what I said to get in;...maybe he just saw the desperate look in my eyes.
