La vue d'en haut


My very first trip to Paris in 2007, I climbed to the dome of the Sacre Coeur with my daughter and granddaughter. We didn't set out to do that but got in the wrong line to see the crypts. When I finally arrived at the top, this is what I saw. The whole city of Paris at my feet and la Tour in the distance. In 2009, friends Peter, Maya and Janet "persuaded" me to do it one more time. This is the photo I took in July, 2009. The view leaves you breathless in many ways!


I am thrilled to finally announce that my PHOTOS IN FRENCH photo collections are now available as a resource for French teachers across grade levels on World of Reading. It's been a long time coming and hope that if you teach French or know someone who does, you will share this resource.

I did the very same thing thinking I was going down and ended going up, up, up. Having a fear of heights and all those stairs in very tight quarters it was quite the experience but oh the view! Would I do it again, no, but I am so glad I accidentally saw this glorious site.
