Another beautiful day dawned on Sunday and Maurice and I headed outside to visit Parc AndrÃ© CitroÃ«n, a park built on the site of what was once a plant for making bleach (Javel) and then the site of a automobile plant, that of CitroÃ«n, a French car famous for its suspension. AndrÃ© CitroÃ«n, on an interesting side note, was famous for advertising and even advertised his car on the side of the Eiffel Tower.
We got out at the metro stop to find this beautiful bridge, Pont Mirabeau.
For twelve Euros you can go up this tethered air balloon. The Eiffel Tower is nearby so I imagine there is a good view. Too cheap to do it, plus there was a long line.
There were two of these green houses. We went in one and it was really hot and full of rather dry looking plants from Australia.
Reflection of the air balloon in a business building next to the park.
And the first sign of Spring, daffodils. They always make me happy.
