Voyage to Paris, and beyond?

We started with our trip to Paris in March 2006...and from there, who knows? We are a mother and daughter having an adventure.

Nearing the end

No photos tonight, though we have many. It's a bittersweet night - of course we are glad to go home and see our loved ones, but it's hard to say goodbye. We had a mostly lovely day today - finally made it to the Eiffel Tower (though not the very top) and to an absolutely wonderful exhibition of Henri Cartier-Bresson photographs. I twas at his foundation, in Montparnasse - a neighborhood we hadn't yet seen. It reminded us of the theater district in NYC - quite lively, though perhaps also slightly seedy. We'd had some interesting encounters earlier with crazy homeless people, busses that weren't running, and other challenging situations, but we overcame all.

Tonight, for our last night out, we went with our friends Michel and Christian to a little outdoor cafe near Beaubourg. There is a fountain there with whimsical and amusing sculptures - we sat nearby and tried to find something CB would like to eat. We failed, so we snuck off to "McDo" to get her a happy meal. (SI quite enjoyed her duck with cabbage, however.)

Perhaps when we get home we can post our last pictures and descriptions of the last few days.

Hi, I've been reading your trip journal with a lot of interest, remembering our last conversation. :-) It sounds as though you and CB had a wonderful trip, making for lasting memories for you both. You may inspire me to do the same with my girls!
