Gay Paree, May Paree!

Recently, went to Paris to meet two smiley ex-colleagues, one of whom was on assignment there. Together we did the touristy thing and visited the Louvre -- did you know Monna Lisa is spelt this way?! -- the Eiffel, Champs-Elysee and Montmart, the vibrant artistic part of the city near the Sacred Heart church where they filmed 'Amelie'.

Here are a few pictures:

She must moan a lot with all those pushing elbowing inquisitive visitors - bullet proof glass notwithstanding. :)

Wahhh...bestnya.. Should've asked u to send me a postcard from there. Am trying to collect postcards from all over..;o)

You must've had loads of fun huh? =D

Ha ha, TH. Moana Lisa could be a more apt way of spelling her name, you think? You just wonder why anyone in their right mind would want to shoot a painting. But then again, those who do are not in their right minds, eh?

Grace, it was a lot of fun relaxing and exploring with two people I know well.
I can get you postcards from the south of France (where I'm going for a week; unfortunately the Cannes Film Fest and Monaco Grand Prix are going on around this time, so things could be pretty hairy). How about a cow postcard from Switzerland where I live? Some of them have swishing tails and blinking eyes. Cute.
