Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Bruce Willis in Town .......

I was fortunate to stumble across the filming of  RED 2
lots of big name stars right there on the streets of Paris
doing what they do best  .... making movies.

Window Shopping in the 5eme........

Laduree Bonaparte is such a pretty shop
with little boxes of decadent macarons in all flavours
pistache - chocolat - fleur d'oranger - caramel-a-la-fleur.

I just love taking a peek through their windows!

The Soft Grey Skies of Paris .......

No matter if the skies are grey
there are always people out-and-about in Paris.
These girls wanted their photo taken with  the majestic
Eiffel Tower as a backdrop ... of course I obliged
I hope they were happy

AndrOet ...............

Androuet at the bottom end of Rue Moufftard
crammed with the most amazing selections of cheeses

My choice for the day was " Delice de Bourgogne"
a decadent triple cream cheese - buttery textured and utterly sumptuous
 I devoured this with a hunk of crusty baguette
in the nearby little Saint-Medart church yard

Jardin du Luxembourg .........

Snippets from my day out at the delightful Luxembourg Gardens in Paris
Very wet and very cold but nothing that an umbrella and a sturdy pair of boots couldn't handle.

The Sound of Music .....

On entering this majestic old church "St Etienne du Mont" in Paris' 5th arrondissment
I could hear wonderful singing coming from some-where
at the rear of the church .... on following the sound I found this
small group of children who had the most amazing voices.
A special moment in time
