Cimetière des chiens. Located in the outskirts of Paris, if you have the time, it's a very interesting side trip!

This pool of water flows down from the outside of the Fondation Louis Vuitton to this lower level. Peter tried his best to talk someone, anyone in "charge", to allow us inside this area so I could get better photos but non. Regardless, I was happy with what I got through the glass walls. Merci Peter for always going the extra mile for my photography!

Chateau de Chantilly with friends Anne and Owen Phillips was delightful. The Musée Condé has a magnificent collection of paintings. It's worth the trip just outside of Paris.

Here in my hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, we have some charming little "book houses' on posts stationed around town. I love this free library concept. You share your gently read books and take another from a generous neighbor.
Last November during our walk from the center of Rueil-Malaison to the chateau, we came upon the French version. These former phone booths are now transformed into a lovely free library. Now I'm regretting I didn't do a little shopping!

The French have a flair for displaying their wares most of the time. Here at the Marché aux Puces, this stall owner took a simpler approach. Those white gloves on the top brought back memories of my childhood!

As most of my readers know by now, I arrived in Paris last November the morning after our presidential election. I snapped this photograph a few days later at a newsstand in Gare Lazare. I have held onto it for several reasons. Maybe I just was hoping for the best, didn't want to be political here or just couldn't really deal with it. Now, I feel is the time to share.

Comédie-Française at Place Colette seems to be the favorite spot for a smoke break. Seems like I catch someone almost every trip.

UPDATE! Thanks to my kind reader JPD, who left a comment, we all now know this is the Hôtel de Beauvais on Avenue François Miron in the Marais.

I love this bridge. I love it more now that the city of Paris has removed the 45 tons of "love" locks to save it. Now with the new glass panels, you can actually see the Seine again!

For the four trips to Paris in January, only once, ONCE, was I lucky enough to experience a magical snowfall, January 2010. That morning held another delightful surprise. For the first time since I had visited Paris, the construction walls had been taken down overnight to reveal the newly restored Colonnes de Buren! I'm grateful for the wonderful memories of that morning walking through the Palais Royal with Mary.
