My one day in Paris was interesting. It reminded me of visiting the Memphis zoo with Aunt Dorothy. We dashed from place to place with my bags in tow, stopping only long enough to say, “Wow! How beautiful,” snap a shot, and head off to the next sight. Sheila kept saying, “Have I told you how glad I am that you’re here? And that you speak English?” as we rushed from place to place.We went from the airport (decorated with large spins of the Mona Lisa) . . .
1. Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL architecture. We saw lots more than what’s listed here . . . it would just take too long to list them all (or post the pictures here.)
2. There is a lot of trash.
3. There are lots of stairs. Not fun when lugging a suitcase.
4. It stinks. You don’t want to know why.
5. Eight hours in Paris gave me a distinct fondness for the US obsession with personal hygiene.
