~Paris...Day 2 (Part 3) ~2nd September, Quays of Paris, 1st arr~




Still 2nd September 2015 and on our wonderful bus trip around Paris
We bought tickets on the Hop On Hop Off Bus 
These tickets lasted for 2 or 3 days
By road or boat whenever we liked........Just hop on and  hop off if you want to look at something and then back on again
Here we are coming upon Francois Mitterrand Quay 




Here 'tis along with the River Seine in the background
Our first look at this and boy was I excited



Two quick views of the Musee des Antiques in passing 




Francois Mitterrand Quay


Paris - 1st arr.

Quay of La Megisserie


Quay of Gesvres


Beautiful lamp posts everywhere


Paris - 4th arr

I'm not used to seeing such crowds 
Cars, bikes, people.......they all seem to work together here

Petit Pont

Next time still on 6th arr, Champs-Elysées and seeing the Eiffel Tower up close!!!

Unforgettable, isn't it dearest Dzintra?

I remember when we traveled up from the south to Paris by le TGV. We emerged from the metro and when I turned to my right, there was Notre Dame. It was so surreal, and to imagine it's been there for so long, so many people, ordinary, famous, important, have passed it and so did I.

Enjoy your day!
