I know it's been two weeks now since we dashed over to Paris to see MargieCM and her wonderful bunch. Two weeks can look like an eternity, especially after VallyP posted her report the moment we got off the train in Rotterdam (next time wait until we're home safe and sound, ok?).
As usual I got distracted by all sorts of things, but at last here are some pictures I took in Paris.
So now that the meal is over, here is my mustard.
Val's posted the pictures with wonderful people on them, so I am free to do the views of buildings and -of course- canals.
Let's begin with a panoramic view from the window of the appartement they'd rented not too far from the Place des Vosges.
Then 4 images from the Canal St-Martin, a real navigable canal through the city. This area is something I discovered when I was 17. Since then, others have discovered it as well - to my regret, but then I can't blame them. The area is just magical, especially the parts you don't see, because over a distance of 2.2km / 1.4M, the canal is invisible from above. On top there is a boulevard where people from the neighbourhood go for a stroll, meet acquaintances and play pétanque.
As it is hard to produce images of the invisible, here are a few from the canal where it is visible to the naked eye.
