Paris Photos

Again, another mix of photos around Paris:

I like this light fixture seen in the window of a cafe.

I went to the Cognac-Jay Museum to see paintings done of Venice about the Carnaval through the ages. I didn’t get any photos of the art. It was interesting but the museum is so small and clogged with people that I didn’t enjoy myself. The explanations were put below the paintings requiring you to bend over to read them and when you did you automatically blocked the way of people trying to pass. As I left there was a long line waiting to get in and I was glad I got out before they all tried to move through the museum.

The beautiful glass dome in Galeries Lafayette. I went there to look at shoes but it was so crowded (I think there’s a theme going here. I do hate crowds.) and there were so many shoes to look at-it’s a huge department covering a whole floor- that I left without buying any, and I really do need some. I lost some weight after having my gall bladder out and, unfortunately, when I lose weight I also lose it in my feet and just about walk out of my shoes.

The clock tower at Gare de Lyon taken from the bus I was on as we passed.

A statue of Joan of Arc, a strong woman, in the church of St Eustache.

Milan

Right next to the beautiful Duomo in Milan is what is basically an upscale shopping mall,Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, but what a beautiful one!

A beautiful building near where we parked. Normally, driving and parking are very difficult in Milan. In fact, I once drove into Milan by myself years ago trying to get to the Last Supper. Since it was before GPS I was hoping signs would guide me there. I’ve never been so lost. I did manage to find it then had a horrible time getting out of Milan. Sundays are the best day to drive there and we easily found parking.
