You’ve been begging for them, so here are some more photos from Paris…

1930.jpg

This is one of the series of odd vehicles they have here in Paris. Next trip over I’ll be renting one of these 1930s era scooters.

arch.jpg

The Arch around which Tour de France riders shall be traveling this Sunday. Can’t wait!!

artalley.jpg

This was an alley in Brussels. Look at what the street sign says…ave du arts.

arte.jpg

Mr. Picasso did this little ditty.

arty.jpg

Some guy named Jeff Cutler took this photo. Almost as arty as Picasso.

aviation.jpg

The Aviation Club, Paris. Where I shall play poker either tomorrow or next Monday. Watch for an update.

bar food.jpg

Bar food in Paris…really.

barview.jpg

The view from the bar. By the way, uploading these one at a time is very annoying, so I hope you’re really enjoying this.

belgium.jpg

An arty shot of a square in Brussels on Tuesday.

bike.jpgbike.jpg

Just another odd vehicle. Many more to follow – mostly small ones.

bike2.jpg

This thing looks like it has an engine. Odd.

bikes.jpg

These are the Velib bikes. They are for free use in half-hour increments, you just have to leave a credit card. And you have to be OK riding a pink bike.

bikex.jpg

Bike seat by Picasso. Really.

breakfast.jpg

This was our regular breakfast when we woke up early enough to have breakfast. Otherwise we found ourselves buying a loaf of bread at a bakery and wandering around looking for a good cup of coffee.

Brussels.jpg

Just another arty photo of Brussels.

car.jpg

Now we get into the mini car section.

choky.jpg

Or the hot chocolate section. Mmmm, chocolate.

colortiny.jpg

Another car…

crazychurches.jpg

With odd looking churches added for effect.

cutout.jpg

And more stuff outside churches.

door.jpg

This is a standard garage in Paris. Built right into the side of the building and opening upon a courtyard. People use it as their main door too.

facew.jpg

Just another French guy showing me where it says that they are NOT cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

food.jpg

Speaking of eating. The food was marvelous. I have already compiled solid memories of four great meals. And we did a lot of fending for ourselves as restaurants were a little pricey.

housecar.jpg

It is perfectly healthy to be obsessed with tiny cars.

icedcream.jpg

Some hot Parisian who tried to get me to move to Paris by feeding me ice cream. I ate the ice cream and said I’d think about it.

kevork.jpg

I see dead people.

lion.jpg

Oh, my. Lion in the Louvre.

louvre2.jpg

Another arty shot. Of the Louvre this time, a little ironic.

miniandscoot.jpg

OK. Another car and a scooter. More photos to come in a future post. I’ll leave you with just these last few…

One of my best shots this trip. Notre Dame from an odd angle.
