Turning 30 in Paris: Part Deux

Good Americans, when they die, go to Paris.  ~Thomas Gold Appleton

Brunch at Café Le Piquet and a stroll through the 7th arrondissement with our brilliant and inspiring friend Katie, whom we met when we taught English together in Japan almost 8 years ago (Gasp! Has it been that long?)

Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Église Saint-Sulpice

La rue Saint-Étienne-du-Mont in the 5th arrondissement

 Carrousel at Jardins du Trocadéro

 Last morning in Paris

 The plaque and Vel' d'Hiv Monument.  We should neither accept nor forget.


See you next time, mon Paris!  Until then. . .
