vines. This building in the Marais
was just dripping with them.

|After going to see the Christmas lights on|
rue Cler, we were on our way to the Eiffel Tower
through the otherwise quiet 7th arrondissement and
came across this place. I looked online—it
might be worth checking out next time.
Looks inviting anyway, don't you agree?

and to Our World Tuesday.]

|Leaving Paris (sigh), we were glad our driver|
took the more scenic route to CDG through town—
we passed right by the statue of Jeanne d'Arc that seems
to stride valiantly through the Place des Pyramides.
Apparently someone decided she'd be more comfortable
in sneakers and has kindly (?) given her a pair.

|It was mostly cloudy in Paris last month, but|
there was one morning . . . I was going to an exhibit
of Brassaï's photos and stalked shadows
all the way from St. Germain and across the
Pont d'Arcole to the Hôtel de Ville.
(As expected, Brassaï's work was inspiring—
but mostly humbling.)

|You are looking out to the rue de Valois from the |
arcade that surrounds the Palais Royal gardens,
one of the most elegant spaces in all of Paris.

|On the one really sunny afternoon we had in Paris |
last month, we made a beeline for the rooftop terrace
of the Galeries Lafayette to catch the sun
setting behind the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais.
I think it was well worth braving the
cold up there for this view!

|A place of worship is almost always a peaceful place. |
This one is the church of St. Paul–St. Louis, in
the Marais. When I last saw it, in 2011, the exterior
was pitch black. It has since been given a
well-deserved cleaning and bright red doors.
