The City of Lights

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday

If you’re following on Facebook, you know that this has been a winter for us to remember.  From November through January, in addition to Paris we’ve made visits to Lisbon, Istanbul, and a month-long jaunt through India.

Over a long weekend in December we were able to score cheap flights to The City of Lights.  We had planned it a while back and only reconsidered for about two seconds after hearing about the terrorist attacks a few weeks earlier.

But in the end, logic and reason prevailed since living in fear is no way to go through life.

What more can be said about Paris?  A truly magnificent and world-class city.  Go for the sites, stay for the food.

The spotlights radiate out the top of the Eiffel Tower like a crown and every once in awhile shoot down and highlight parts of the city.
