  4. Wonderful shots. Makes me want to go peek at it in person again. I was only there for one cold evening!

  5. Fabulous pictures! I was subbing all of last week and time and time again, when students hear about how much traveling I’ve done, they inevitably want to know if I’ve been to Paris. I’ve not, but it’s certainly on my list!
