My last day in Paris, Peter asked where I wanted to go. I didn't miss a beat... Tuileries. It is a place I return to again and again. Even in the winter I love it. Perhaps it's because I have such sweet memories of my first taste of Paris with Melissa and Eva right there. This day it was yet another misty, chilly Paris day. We strolled from the Louvre right through the gardens and then the grande roue loomed ahead. Peter asked if I wanted to go up. I said, " Oh, non, I don't have the courage!" Then....I don't know why... as we walked right to it, I turned and said, "Yes, I will do it!" Thankfully Peter had the Euros, and up we went. I closed my eyes, and when I opened them, I saw Paris spread all below me! A breathtaking experience... my last day in Paris!
For the REAL Paris From Above by Yann Arthus-Bertand go here. I saw this at the Marmottan-Monet in July, 2009. It is wonderful!
