will try to keep you all up to date

Lived in Paris for a few years

I work in the oil business, which is known for sending folk to the far ends of the not-quite-discovered world. So a 3 year posting in Paris was pretty good. It could be so so so much worse.

We lived in the 7th Arr, not too far from the Eiffel Tower. The 7th is pretty central, but not too touristy. It borders on the 15th which, a local / residantial area, so see some of Paris as Parisians see it. This shot of the tower is taken from Av. de Suffren which is the border between the 7th and 15th.

Statues everywhere. I wonder if anybody's counted all the statues? I bet one of the most numerous is this guys - the infamous Charles de Gaulle. He's got most of the city named after him!

For us Scots, Paris is usually a muggy, hot crowded place. Put it can get decided chilly sometimes, even a wee droppie snow falls now and then. So be prepared for anything!
