I forgot to mention that with all of our walking on the first day, Rami hurt his foot. So on the second day we woke up to rain, grey skies and a hobbling husband. Nothing dampened our spirits though and we chose to buy a metro pass to get around.
This time we walked to the Louvre - even stunning in the rain, the Jardin des Tuileries and to Notre Dame - another favourite of mine. The scupltured details in this gothic cathedral are breathtaking and very powerful in imagery. We stood in the rain staring at it for quite a while.




Then onto some more of Marieke's recommended shops... which took us to a really lovely area full of small galleries and wonderful little art/design shops and designer shops. But they were all closed.




door details

So we decided to return the next day....more pics here

    Beautiful architecture, when I travel I like to take pictures of buildings too, especially when they are as amazing as those here. Looks like you had a wonderful time despite some being closed. Still on my list of places to visit :)

    hope Rami's foot is OK now...Im assuming you didnt take the girls to Paris?
    hope it was romantic for you...it rained a lot when we were there too...one day we bought wine, bread and cheese and sat in our hotel hearing the rain in the courtyard - was a perfect moment!!
