Some of my Paris research. I like to be organised, but I wasn't super rigid with where we went. Just some definite places to head for, and then seeing where that in turn would take us.
Like seeing little secret courtyards, and quiet morning streets.
It's interesting how Paris is so steeped in history; ridiculously formal and beautiful in places, and rough and ready in others. The local street art scene helps keeping the city from feeling like a staid museum.
And you always have to look up, or you'll miss trees and birds and hangry signs.
These last three are from Jardins des Tuileriers, where we had our last lunch before we headed home on our trains. So strange to see spring here now, when IRL we're speeding towards autumn! I'll be back soon with more. This delay in blogging effects my picture taking - I don't carry my camera with me anymore, and I feel sad about that. Sigh.
