Strolling the Champs-Elysees.

More like rowing upstream, not exactly a stroll. I must have picked the windiest, coldest day for a stroll along the Champs-Elysees. My eyes were watering so badly, my nose was running, and I thought my ears were about to fall off from the cold. But it is so very beautiful. So I'm not complaining. Not at all. From the manicured trees that line the Avenue, the flower beds with tulips in bloom, the famous stores and restaurants, the Parisien architecture, to the Arc de Triumph, and just watching the crazy traffic go around and around and around in circles, a stroll along the Champs-Elysees is a must for anyone visiting Paris.

And yes, of course I went in. And no, I didn't buy anything. Yet.


  1. Thoroughly enjoying your writings, Lisa. Just wonderful tidbits of your days there. Expecting to see more installments of "Dear Monsieur Construction Worker...". Could be the title of your book. No, really.

  2. The funniest part, Dan, it's all true!

    I love my neighbors!
