Flying High In The Paris Sky

The Paris Fair along the edge of the Jardin des Tuileries -  one of summer's  joys... 
Come along for the ride!

How Much Is That Ducky in the Window?
(Apologies to Bob Merrill and Patti Page)

For fun, colorful gifts stop by one of the many Pylones throughout the city (also in New York)...

where you'll find fun, frivolous, functional items.

A Metro Moment

The Paris Metro is fast, efficient, easy to navigate and often interesting...

Feed Me!  
"Feed me, feed me" they all seem to shout, and so the Parisians do...

What better use for all those bits of leftover baguette than a feeding frenzy on the edge of the reflecting pool at  le Jardin du Luxembourg?

Parc André Citroën

Located in the 15th arrondissement, Parc Andre Citroen, built on the former site of the auto maker, is rarely visited by tourists.  If you go, take a ride in the tethered balloon for a sky-high view of Paris, wander the various gardens, picnic on the lawn or cool off in the dancing water jets.

Dancing the Night Away....

What could be more romantic than tangoing into the night along the banks of the Seine?
Join the party every night during the summer months on the quai Saint Bernard, near the  Tino Rossi sculpture gardens ( Musée de la Sculpture en Plein Air )  Free lessons - another opportunity to spiff up your française! - followed by open dancing...
