Paris (A Long-Delayed Post)

Ah, Paris.

I do enjoy your familiar sights

IMG_1719

with splendid red doors

IMG_1780

and your museums

with piles of statues

IMG_1674

and Cycladic fertility statues

IMG_1707

and other Humanities references

IMG_1681

and your artist mansions

IMG_1750

with abundant roses and shushing bushes

IMG_1740

and other sights from a good movie

IMG_1730

and ornate lamposts

IMG_1715

and medieval treasures

IMG_1769

and giant chess sets

IMG_1763

which are quickly overrun by hipsters, seniors, and school groups

IMG_1770

and bustling arrondissements

IMG_1775

and your delicious gyros

IMG_1774

and chocolate shops

IMG_1760

with shiny wall displays

IMG_1759

which compete with glowing ink displays

IMG_1756

in awesome stationary stores

and so many more delights that make you a city I’m happy to come back to again and again.
