It was a trip down memory lane for us, as Daniel and I went to Paris in the summer of 2007. We revisited many of the same sites and enjoyed a couple of "Before and After" photos. This time we spoke more French than last time, but the Parisian accents and attitudes are hard to deal with...

|In the 2007 photo (below) I made Daniel pose on the canon.|
He is looking behind him at a guard blowing his whistle and
reprimanding him... Needless to say, there was no climbing on
canons this time!
We managed to fit in an action-packed sightseeing schedule, traipsing from the Moulin Rouge up to Montmartre, and from Notre Dame along the Seine to the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre. We also squeezed in a visit to Versailles - it was magnificent! Here are a few of the highlights:
|Le Moulin Rouge|
|Artists' square in Montmartre|
|The Palace of Versailles|
|King Louis' bedroom|
|The four of us in front of la Tour Eiffel|
|Arc de Triomphe with its crazy seven-laned circle|
|The Big Wheel near the Luxor Obelisk|
|The Louvre Museum|
C'est la vie!
