Did I ever mention that Paris is my favorite
city place in the world? I guess that might be obvious. I lived there for about five years many years several decades ago, and I've never gotten over it. Walt and I have spent innumerable vacations in Paris, just wandering the streets — enjoying the sights and atmosphere. Here are some photos of one neighborhood where I've ended up spending a significant amount of time over the years.
The elevated métro line is the one that runs from Nation to Etoile through Montparnasse.
The beautiful building with the green dome at the corner is easy to pick out, even from the top of the Tour Montparnasse.
It's amazing how the apartment buildings are all packed together. It's like a 3D jigsaw puzzle.
I would love to see into some of these windows and know what the different apartments are like inside.
How do the taggers manage to get up here and make their mark on such high walls?
At least one friend who reads this blog will recognize this neighborhood immediately...
