After a couple of days in Paris our magnificent vacation has reached its end. My impression of Paris this go-round was definitely colored by the fact that we had just spent the previous 4+ weeks exploring the much less frenetic and incredibly picturesque countryside.
We are here. In the city I love. Actually, we’re on the outskirts of Paris, staying in my brother-in-law’s apartment in a town called Nogent-sur-Marne. The apartment is located in a highrise and their balcony offers a terrific view of Paris. It’s hazy today, but here’s a photo of the city’s most famous monument taken from our digs.
