Paris: looking up in Paris

After the "Beach" along the Seine, we went up and found ourselves near the Pont the Arts and the entrance to Louvre's Cour Carree, Square Place - wonderful memories.

Long long time ago, in 1976 I went there to see a Russian ballet for free, ticket received as the first 100 who asked from a TV magazine, It was my birthday and it was the first time I was alone, after my separation from my husband.

I felt lonely.

Near me two old ladies spoke - in Hungarian!

After heistating, I begin to speak to them in my mather language that I did not use for a long time.

Stephanie, remained my friend until her death, thirty years later, and what a wonderful friend!

From the cour Carre, we went to the main place with the new Pyramide and from there towards the Petit Carroussel, near it there was a Paul bodega and we sit down to have a sendwitch. What a full day!

There is a lot around there to look up too.

Looking down, and around.

I also took a lot of pictures of people, even children photographing their parents.

I arrived home to Argenteuil with my neighbour Rozalia and more then 120 pictures.

  1. You're the first person I've heard mention the pyramid without complaining.

    Loved hearing about the "sendwitch"!
