Paris Pictures

Most of you have probably been to Paris, so these pictures are not going to be anything new to you. I had some time on Monday and hit a few of the common sites. I have seen all of these before, but it was nice to see them again.

The Parisians aren't crazy about it, but I think it is pretty cool.

The Plaza de la Concorde.

Famous to bicycle fans and shoppers alike.

Sigghhh. What could have been. If I hadn't squandered my prime years as well as lacked talent, drive and motivation, I could have ridden a victory lap with the Stars & Stripes.

One of the many flower patches in the Louvre gardens.

A view of the front of Notre Dame cathedral.

One of the many cups of coffee at one of the many little cafes that I visited.

Most of us have been to Paris? You talking Paris, Texas? I haven't been there, either. But I have been to Madrid ... Iowa.

Cool pics. I need to go to Europe.

Yeah, Paris. Sure. Been there done that. NOT.

Really great pictures, but what is that spire-looking thing? Is that a french rocket lauching tower or something? I didn't know they had astronauts in French, I mean France.

Oldman - it is called the Obelisk of Luxor and is 3300 years old. It is from the time of Ramses II and was a gift to Charles X from the Egyptians in 1829.
