The figure on top of the column in Bastille is called the Genie. It always looks fabulous when the sun is shining.
I’m posting this from Santa Barbara-what a beautiful city. We visited Solvang yesterday, a town established in 1911 by Danish Americans and it has many buildings built in the Danish style along with some fake storks on the roofs for luck. We had some Danish food for lunch along with an interesting dessert-round pastry (baked) topped with raspberry jam and powdered sugar. Very good.
We leave tomorrow for Dallas where we spend the night. Then off to NYC and Paris. It’s going to be a long two days.
