Paris – something worth writing about

Day one in Paris. We napped because Ashwin was falling asleep at lunch, so we were wide awake in the evening. I wanted to show Venkatesh and Ashwin a concert at St. Chapelle, which I believe is one of the most beautiful experiences in the world. We landed up at just the right time and it started pouring rain while we were inside. Suddenly near the end of the concert the entire space brightened as the sun came out and shone through the stained glass surrounding us. Lovely.
A great start to our next day with croissant, cafe creme, fresh squeezed orange juice and live music playing across the street. Four older men, Les 5 Doights at le Pouce, playing jazz-fanfare music (kind of like Dixieland). Wandered all over Paris afterwards, la Place de la Concorde, Tuillerie Gardens, and the Sunday bird and flower market. ‘Mummy can I have a bird?’

Taken from the top of the ferris wheel.
