PARIS - A DREAM FULFILLED
What better way to have a POSITIVE TUESDAY than to head for Paris. TUESDAY, May 1st Rick and I left for Paris. France. It was Rick's Christmas present to me. Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to go to Paris. It was as beautiful as I had always imagined and even more exquisite at night when buildings are lit, streetlamps glow, and the Eiffel Tower sparkles like the jewel that it is.
It was overcast and rainy almost the entire week we were there, but did we care? Absolutely not! It was Paris!

I studied my French for weeks before we went but was impressed by how many people in Paris spoke English. I've heard comments about the French being rude, but we saw none of that. Everyone we came in contact with was pleasant, helpful and friendly. They were patient with my slow, insufficient French and although I'm not sure if they were impressed by my attempts at their language or just needed a good laugh, we were always able to communicate.
Everybody who knows me knows I take LOTS of pictures. ( I took a little over 1,000 - yes, really -1,000 - in the week we were in Paris.) I'd love to share all of them with you but that would take too long. If you'd like to see A FEW of my Paris pics click on the link below or check out my PHOTO PAGES.
