Parents In (and out of) Town

My parents were in town last week to visit, and because this is Europe, we planned an out of town trip to Paris.

L was out of town on business, and so my parents had to depend on my map reading skills (or lack thereof). Fortunately Paris is lovely wherever you go, and getting lost a couple of times wasn't so bad.

We stayed at a nice bed and breakfast near the Opera, the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. I know you've all seen tons of pictures of Paris, but here are some of them anyway:

The Arc De Triomphe


Walkway to The Louvre 


The Opera


The Eiffel Tower and Hello Kitty


Facade of The Notre Dame Cathedral (at least part of it)


Escargot


Baglover, here's one for you - le mothership:


We also went to Delft, known for being well preserved (the buildings haven't changed for the most part since the thirteenth century), Delftware and where Vermeer lived his entire life. Here's a nice picture of the Nieuwe Kerk:


Thanks for visiting, Papa and Mom. It was wonderful spending time with both of you. Let's do that again soon.
