After the Dior exhibit I thought I would take a bus to see the Dior store on Avenue Montaigne. I went a few other places as well and ended up taking two metro rides and five buses. I was exhausted when I got home, but it was worth it.

This was on Rue de Rivoli in front of a hotel.

I liked Avenue Montaigne much more than the Champs Elysees for Christmas lights. It’s a smaller street for one thing and I just liked the Christmas lights there more. This is the front of Plaza Athenee Hotel.

The lights on the Dior store.

The elegant decorations at the Peninsula Hotel.

A Christmas tree seen through the door of the restaurant there.

The tree at the Shangrila Hotel. I had a 12 Euro coke there at the bar. I love dark, elegant hotel bars.

I walked from the hotel to Trocadero to take the metro line 6 home and, of course, had to get a photo of the Eiffel Tower. As you can see, it was foggy.

Christmas Lights and Windows

I haven’t been out too much since I returned from the States but since I did need to make an “emergency” trip to a book store for a birthday gift I got a look at some of the Christmas decorations near Rue du Rivoli.

Gold and silver decorations in the Guerlain window.

Same store, different window with a star around a bottle of perfume.

A simpler window, this one selling Limoges items. I liked this little tree.

The lights on Place Vendome. They almost always have a modern look there.
