Just Paris Sites - Don't Expect Anything Clever

First picture is of my son Nick and his girlfriend, Kelsey, looking at the Mona Lisa at the Louvre. Then we all walked and took more pictures - this one includes my daughter Amanda. Good Times!


  1. How fun it would be to travel to exotic places with my children.

  2. Your children give a whole other dimension to the places you think you're seen all of. And it adds very little expense, even if they can't (which is not the case for this trip) pay for it. After all, since they are my children, they enjoy discovering local foods and cooking them in the room, which we all share. And a walk along the Seine is more entertaining than a night at the Moulin Rouge. Good Times!

  3. We invite Bill's kids along on many of our big adventures. Simon is most disposed to come along - to the Rt 66 tour we did for Bill's 60th and to Australia to see Bill's sister.

    I laughed to see the 'Mona Lisa' experience. The ridiculous crowds and what a lot of fuss over a painting. We enjoyed the Musee D'Orsay far better. Fewer crowds and I got to see Monet pictures (La Pie!) I've only ever seen on calendars. Those crowds at the Louvre were what made us choose not to go see the David statue in Florence.
