For Marisa

a turquoise train....

one of....

the many....

metro....

train stops....

they are futuristic looking in a retro way....love them!

Me looking crabby at euro disney....i had my fill of a billion crying italian children with their mothers yelling at them in their sing song voices...

Smokin' it up at euro disney....

the georges pompidou centre....

the restaurant in the george pompidou centre....yum i ate a lamb there!

the sacred heart cathedral....

Claude Leveques valstar barbie at the georges pompidou centre....it was so awesome i went twice to see it while i was there...a gentle wind in the room....crazy ice skating music you know the organ kind....and pulsating lights and a giant red shoe....hot damn!

pink cow....


a place around the corner from the apartment we rented in 2006....paris i miss you!

  3. that would be lovely to all take a trip together....i feel at home when i am in paris even though my french.... i call it ghetto french is terrible and i know people are cringing i feel no inhibitions when i am there for some reason....the people are friendly and kind....i really dont understand when people tell me "bad Stories". I have been to france 4 times in the last 20 years the last time i was in paris for 17 gloriious days. Now I know thats not a lot but its more than some and i only had bad service once and that was at the airport. So that does not count....it was the airport...who hasnt had bad service at an airport? i posted these for a girl who might use them for her art thesis for art school....i posted the brasserie because i have fond memories of drinking red wine there and who couldnt resist drinking too much at a place called voltaire?

  5. I meant to come look at these earlier but I'm glad your comment today reminded me! Thank you sooo much for taking the time to do this for me! Love all the shots of the metro. Could you tell me what the story with the pink cow is? I'm very intrigued. Is it just one that is there all the time? Was it for a special event?

    Again, can't thank you enough! So sweet of you. Looks like it was a fabulous trip!
