We LOVE the pics!! It's almost like being there. I think vacation pics are so fun to look at; they are more personal than a postcard or something. Share more!

And, I third that motion! That's a wonderful photo of Sacre-Couer, Anno. And, you managed to photograph The Ballerina as well! Is'nt she something? Did you have to take her photo covertly?

I'm waiting for you to tell us if you and Dennis managed to treat yourselves to frogs legs and escargot.

Okay, I will happily comply with your wishes. More pics to come.

The Louvre was open to photographs as long as you didn't use a flash. I was surprised.

While we did not eat escargot, we did see people picking off escargot at tombstones at Cimetiere du Pere-Lachaise (cemetery to the rich and famous). Here is a picture of my favorite tomb there.



It's a man holding and looking at a mask. I assume it is his own face.

Edith Piaf lies here. As you can tell she is much loved.

I was looking for my picture of Balzac's tomb, but I must have forgotten to load it onto photobucket. Here, instead, is the most beautiful tomb I have ever seen.

The tomb with the man holding his own mask gave me chills. Actually it would be a great theme for a spook story. Heh?

Did you walk through some parks? I remember one fountain in particular, with children running around in a circle holding hands. I loved that one. Do you know which one I'm talking about?

Anno, you've uploaded Chopin's tomb instead of Piaf's.

Lola, I will go back and rename my picture. So, Ladies, the great famous Chopin instead of Piafs was the person so greatly loved in the picture above. Across the street from the cemetary they had a few shops that sold flowers. Now isn't that a surprise!

Half way through the cemetary, after 2 weeks of taking pics, my cameras battery finally gave out. It was our last day and only the boat ride on the Seine was left, so I was okay with being done with pictures. But when I finally saw, up close and personal, how beautiful and different each bridge was, I was sorry I had forgotten our transformer.

Hannelore, I am not sure which park that was, but probably Tuileries? We had a difficult time with the wheel chair in parks (the wheels would get stuck in the sand and pebbles) so we gave up on most parks early on in the trip.

Later I will post the requisite picture of the Eiffel Tower.
