Bienvenue à Paris Mes Amies

 la Grand Roue, Tuileries

Today my dear friend Genie and daughter Holly touch their toes on Paris soil for their annual trip to the city they (we) so love.  I found a photo I took about this time in 2008.  Genie and Holly, we all await photos and tales galore of glorious days and evenings spent wandering the streets of Paris meeting new and old friends.  You can follow Genie on her terrific Paris blog, Paris and Beyond.

Have a wonderful time, Genie and Holly. Sorry it's so cold! Love the photo, Virginia, that would make the snow go away...

Great photo, V—and I hear it's supposed to warm up a bit in the next few days. Here's hoping, for Genie and Holly's sake!

Cette grande roue illuminée fait beaucoup d'effet la nuit, surtout la nuit! Avec la neige, je ne sais pas si elle fonctionne!

We didn't get to see the Grand Roue when we were there last Christmas. Of course, we were more interested in seeing Les Champs-Elysées.

I wanna see this in person some day

That's a beautiful way to send-off/welcome Genie and Holly to Paris, V. I'm looking forward to seeing some of their adventures.

I can confirm that "la Grande Roue" is there also this year... and that I will meet Genie and Holly in an hour or so! Cold! I guess we will find some nice inside place for a glass of ... let's see! (Don't cry! Soon it's your turn to be here!)
