Many of you have asked to see photos from Paris. As you might expect, I have so many I would like to share that I cannot put them all in one post. My current plan is to do three to four posts spread over the next few weeks. All photos are identified at the end of the post. And all photos were taken by the photographer in the family, Tom, unless otherwise indicated. I hope you enjoy this first look at our trip.






1. (L) Stained glass – Notre Dame; 2. (R) Hall of Mirrors – Versaille
3. Winter Garden – Versaille
4. (L) The Kiss (my all-time favorite sculpture) by Auguste Rodin; 5. The Gates of Hell by Auguste Rodin
6. Dining room (looking out through one of the exterior clock faces) – Musee D’Orsay

In a future post, I will include some of the differences between Paris now and the Paris I visited in 1965.

Beautiful pictures!
My human was just recently saying she wished she would have visited Versailles again before she left France (last time was when she was a human kitten), especially since she lived not too far away before she left (in St-Germain en Laye) but there was always so many people… Hope you didn’t have too many!
We’re both eager to read more!
Purrs to Lisbeth!

Oh oh oh! These are just beeyootiful! The Human saw the movie Farewell My Queen (about Marie Antoinette) last spring (she thinks) and she was fantasizing about visiting Versailles–so beautiful! We loved these pictures and look forward to more (course, they’d be better if they had kitties in ’em, right?) XOXOXOOX
