Lights For A Friend

I have a friend from California visiting me for the holidays. She arrived in the evening and we had a rental car so we took her around Paris to see it lit up.


Galeries Lafayette really puts on a show. I wonder how much their electricity bill goes up at Christmas? They have animated windows as well and children were stacked up trying to get a look at them.


Still the department store.


And of course you have to go to the Eiffel Tower. It was doing its sparkling show as we arrived and I took this photo through the window in the roof of the car. As soon as we stopped the car, the sparkling stopped. It only lasts 5 minutes every hour.


It doesn’t look too shabby without the sparkling lights. I got Nancy’s hand in the bottom of the photo. We walked underneath too just to look up.
