I just got back from a quick trip to Paris!  Leaving on Thursday morning I arrived in Paris at 7:50 AM Paris time.  We began tour immediately, meaning I went on about 4 hours sleep in a 30 hour day.  We visited all the sites and I didn’t have to pay for plane, meals, sites, or hotel.  Looking down the Champs Elysees to the Arch de Triomphe to the west and the Louvre to the east, I was amazed to be there. I ran all over the Louvre in four hours from ancient Greek and Roman statuary to Reformation paintings.  I saw the Mona Lisa, Winged Victory of Samothrace, Venus de Milo, statues of the Caesars, winged bulls of the Assyrians, the Code of Hammurabi, the apartments of Napoleon III, Medieval. Renssaince, and Reformation paintings.  I went up in the Eifel Tower, down along the Seine River, later in a night boat ride around the islands of Paris and down to the Eifel Tower. I visited three cathedrals, Versailles and its gardens, walked up Montmarte artist district, ate in the Latin Quarter, navigated the Metro, and flew internationally for the first time, and more.  Check out a few of my pictures.
