It’s said: To see Paris and die. Well, I saw it together with my youngest daughter, and we were enormously excited, but thanks God didn’t die. We visited also a bit of Germany on our way. And again I have to apologize for very bad quality of photos. Really don’t know, what was it. Maybe too hot weather or maybe that blue craze, which had overridden France at that time because of football champ. For sure it started already in Berlin
And you can see that others felt hot too:
Also dogs felt like dying.
Only monuments stood erect. And what kind of monuments! See yourself:
Entering France I was seriously surprised. I didn’t understand the message 🙂
The blue people turned out to be the national football team. And if I remember correctly the buzz was about the World Cup. We just happened to get in the middle. And exciting it was.
Paris was preparing for big welcome of their national football heroes.
The Louvre was closed that day, but just outside of it a fantastic flute player was playing.
So we went to Orsay. It was grand of course. The best memories of Paris.
And you will never see something like this in Latvia. Unfortunately.
I was disappointed by Monmartre though. Not much art there nowadays.
And on the bridge over the river.
A new bus with tourists has arrived! Attack them!
But Roden was friendly. And tourists enjoyed themselves, like this playful Russian, for instance.
And so tide and ebb surround this monastery on the coast of the ocean forever. Today one can get to and from the convent along convenient road, but it was not always like that, and at definite times water turned the abbey into a strong fortress.
