Paris in the Spring Time

IMG_3158My tall little girl turned 14, and for her birthday we left Kazakhstan and took a girls trip to Paris for four days.  My folks came too for the multi-generational experience.  We went up the Eiffel Tower and enjoyed dinner there a few nights later with boat ride down the Seine.  Sauntered as one does down the Champs-Elysees and took our lives in our hands navigating the Arc de Triomphe.

We explored and got lost in The Louvre and were surprised how small the Mona Lisa painting is up close and personal.  In Notre Dame we witnessed a group of ladies bare chested and demonstrating, probably then didn’t really need to pay to go and see more bare chested ladies at The Moulin Rouge later that night.  My favorite was probably The Musee d’Orsay a converted railway station with paintings by Van Gogh, Renoir and Monet.  Time well spent one on one with a kid growing up fast.
