I am sad to say, we must be going…

A lot of man-work went on during this Paris experience…

and a lot of rain…

Today we spend trying to fit everything into our suitcases because tomorrow we fly home. Leaving our hearts here though…so many things have been moved to the “we will have to do that next time list”…we will really have to take care of that sooner rather than later…I will blog more about specific places once I catch up on my sleep and process the pictures.
We owe such a debt of gratitude to those who give us tips on what to see…long time friends and those we make ten minutes before…not only the taxi driver but the couple in the cafe at the next table. We have a tip of our own to offer anyone that can make use of it…if you are soaking wet because the rain doesn’t stop and taking pictures in cemeteries has gotten old (balancing an umbrella on your shoulder to protect your iPhone becomes problematic when the wind gusts). To get out of the rain you can hop on the Metro. From the Left Bank take line 6 toward Etoile. The line leaves the tunnel system and goes above ground. Between stations Bir-Hakeim and Passy if you sit on the right side of the train while it travels (hopefully there are not too many raindrops on the glass) you can get this shot…

Get off at Passy and go back and do it again. The above shot was processed with Snapseed app to feel “antiquie” because that is how I felt last night. Here is the shot in a more traditional way…
