On the Bateaux with my Beau

For my first visit to Paris, I decided that some super-touristy fun was in order, regardless of how natives might view the chosen activities. Wandering through the city on our first night there, my beau and I saw a lovely boat pass under us as we crossed the Pont Neuf. It seemed sleeker and fancier than any others we saw and so we spent the next day looking for the same boat while exploring the city along the river. Finally, nearly frozen and weary from the day, we saw it, right at the base of the Eiffel Tower.

And so we booked ourselves the dinner cruise with Bateaux Parisiens

A bit of home in Paris

Far from home, I caught site of a bright gold flame that I recognized instantly. My fellow traveler, a Brit, didn’t see the connection right away. It’s the same flame that the Statute of Liberty holds in New York – a gift, of course, from France to the US. It was nice to spot it, like an inside welcome to US travelers in Paris . . . .

I have seen in Metroblogging Chicago that Tagalog is language number 5 in Chicago! I was not even aware that Tagalog language exist! I have google Tagalog and it seems that Tagalog is part of Malay languages…
By the way French is number 8 (not too bad). The picture is Metroblogging Paris written in Tagalog.

I have seen on Metroblogging Melbourne that French films are famous there. The only thing is that none of these films were a big success as i can remember ;-)

Lost Hearts In Paris

A little keyring, lost and lonely, how many hearts are thrown and tossed, embossed and reeling, throbbing pulse of the city… ?
