Viking River Cruises



     How many of you out there has ever been on a "cruise?"  I have never done it myself, but over the past few years, the idea of taking a cruise has become a very appealing one to me!  I have several friends here in Paris who have been on several different European cruises, and they all come back and talk about how wonderful the experience was!  I sold!!!
     So, I searched the internet and found this company, Viking River Cruises who offer a wide variety of cruises throughout Europe and even in Egypt, China, and Russia!!  Here's their link, Viking River Cruises, and you can check it out and see what they have to offer.  They have so many choices listed on their website that it's really hard to decide!  One that I would really love to take is a cruise along the Danube!  It sounds so enchanting, so relaxing and such a great way to see the sights and scenes of different countries and cultures!  
     Et voilà, you have it... Or, maybe I have it!  A cruise on the Danube awaits... I must go! 





Me, Barbara and Anne

Picnic on the Seine... August 26



Anne's initiation to Paris picnics!  Here we are on the Seine at Pont Sully.  It's our "spot" for picnics when the whether is nice and the days are long!  It's a great way to get together and socialize and enjoy both music, dance and the boats the go by on the Seine!










Night starts to fall on the picnic-ers!













A flame thrower in our midst... First time I've ever seen THIS.....



My last view of Notre Dame as I passed on foot on my way to catch the RER B back to Antony!
