paris part 3


Here are a few of my favorite things from Paris:


the Louvre and the beautiful triangle sculpture (I'm a fan though I know others aren't)...


seeing Paul drink cups with his name on them...


fun photo ops...


making my way through the crowd to see one of the most famous paintings in the world (it lived up to its hype)...


dinner at Bofinger's...


the amazingly simple and delicious picnic breakfasts we had every morning...


the fresh fruit...


visiting my idea of heaven on earth: the Musee d'Orsay...


seeing a whole museum of Rodin sculptures...


spending time on a park bench in the Rodin sculpture garden... 


walking to the top of the Arc de Triomphe ...


(My favorite part of this monument were the naked soldiers who didn't wear pants but did decide to wear helmets and boots.  Priorities.) 



eating McDonalds for the first time in months (maybe years) on the Champs Elysee...


RICK STEVES' guide book!  Yes I'm obsessed ...


seeing pre-colonial Philippine art at the Quai-Branley.  This was a great surprise of the trip, and it was a great way to celebrate Paul's heritage.  Thanks Paris!

You may be getting overwhelmed with the Paris photos, but I promise they're almost finished.  It's been such a joy to share all of them here!
