Early spring

It is surprising to see how the vegetation changes in as little as one week. When I left for Montreal, only the magnolia had bloomed, leaves had not come out yet.

This week cherry blossoms are blooming and trees are filling out. Weather this week-end will be sunny and warm (20 C!), I hope we'll have a nice spring this year!

Sunset over the Seine

For the longest time, I thought that beautiful sunsets never occurred over Paris. My first  parisian apartment located on the first floor had no view and to make matters worse, was facing North.

My new appartement has given me a new lease on life, on the sixth floor right above the surrounding roofs, we are facing South-West : from my living room I can watch the most beautiful sunsets every night.

From the ground, the most beautiful sunsets can be seen close to the Seine River as the open space permits a broader view.

Dog at the tuileries

There are approximately 200 000 dogs for 2,21 millions people in Paris.  Although you will probably meet dogs in restaurants, cafés and shops most parks are not dog friendly.  Oddly enough, part of the Tuileries garden is accessible to dogs!
