|ARC DE TRIOMPHE|

Notre Dame de Paris, which we saw on a day that started overcast before becoming a beautiful, sunny morning.
Then, of course, there is always the Eiffel Tower, which has already appeared in this blog a couple of times this month.

|The Louvre Museum has been synonymous with Paris for a long time. The "pyramid" in front of it is a popular but fairly recent addition: the new entrance to the museum, commissioned in 1984. I didn't, but Dick did have the energy to explore the Louvre. He also climbed the steps to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and to the second level of the Eiffel Tower (as far as the public is now allowed to climb).|
Venus de Milo, above, and the Mona Lisa, shown on the right with some of her adoring fans, are Paris's two most popular ladies. Millions have visited them, but research has apparently shown that the average person spends only 15 seconds viewing the Mona Lisa. How can that be?

In addition to the well-known images seen above, I thought I'd include some shots taken "out and about in Paris" — I'm glad Dick remembered to include the name in the photos of the Academie Nationale de Musique (below) also known as the Paris Opera.
