A view of Paris from the Tour de Montparnasse

It was an AMAZING but very smoggy view from atop!!  I asked the guard outside on the terrace if there was usually that much smog... He replied that it was "la rentré de Parisiens à Paris."  The Parisians coming back to Paris after being away for the month of August... I'd like to mention that Paris seems like a ghost town in during the month of August!!!  Can you imagine if Paris is like that, then my town in Antony is even MORE ghosty than Paris.... It's actually nice NOT having so many people around, after all!!!



There's something L.A. -like about these pics... OHHHH!! The SMOG!! That's it!
Can you find the Arc de Triomphe?


The Jadin de Luxembourg...

Linking through from Susan's blog. Glad I found yours, as I missed her travelougue from France.

Great photos! I've been up there a few times and I love it. I've never waited in line, either.

Too bad about the smog, but wow, great view! Might have to check that out next time I'm in Paris.
