It is different travelling alone.

No one to say, Look at that, Where are we?

I want to do this or that......

So this morning I got on the bus for the fun of it.


It went all the way from here ( the 20e) past the Bastille and the Louvre to the Hotel de Ville.

So relaxing yet still in the buzz of the traffic.


I had to get off and then back on again for the return trip.

The bus went along the Seine for a bit then back to the Rue de Rivoli.


Can you read this? I snapped it at the Pompidou Centre the other day.

It was to explain a series of photographs taken out of windows of planes and trains.

You see why I decided to show you mine?

And of course I went to lunch. Another on my husband's wish list: Au passage.

Here's the menu....

Carpaccio lotte.

Whoops, I nearly ate it all. Canard, carotte, blette: absolutely delicious!

I even sent my first wine back because I didn't like it and wasn't charged.

That's kitchen in there.

And then I rode around on the metro and buses again.....

across the Seine into the left bank up the rue de Rennes looking at that tower of Montparnass.

It so tiring this being a tourist.

  1. I'm enjoying your photos and travelogue. Yesterday's market was scrumptious! Thank you for sharing, since I'll never get to Paris myself :).
