Snippets of Paris

After ten wonderful days it is time to leave Paris. I have loved the different neighbourhoods, roof tops, bridges, buildings, gardens and art. I have enjoyed discovering the street art. We found out that the invader has left his mark strategically around Paris. If you marked them all on a map, they form the shape of a giant invader.

We visited the Shakespeare Bookshop that stands in the Latin Quarter overlooking the Notre Dame. This is a fabulous shop filled with “english” books. I refrained from going too far in – I kept saying to myself “Sarah, remember we don’t want to add more weight to our luggage”. While Keith browsed, I stood outside and enjoyed the scent of lavender from the nearby gardens. I could see the Notre Dame behind the trees – a beautiful place to look at this enormous cathedral.

We have had days filled with glorious sunshine and warmth.

On our last morning, we awoke to grey clouds. The trees are looking autumnal. In ten days, the season has changed. Summer is over. We are heading for Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand to stay with our dear friends the Carlsons for one week. Au revoir Paris!
