Day 495 -πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Last leg home πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·πŸ‡«πŸ‡·

πŸ‡«πŸ‡·So sharing some photos I took from the terraces at the Pompidou Museum which is just a few blocks south of the bombing sites at Place de la Republique. 

πŸ‡«πŸ‡·Almost done with my repacking. Could have taken what I packed for Atlanta because it was warmer in Paris and rainy instead of leaving it behind in wet cool Atlanta.  The last day in Conflans near Paris was the only day we needed warm clothes. 

 
πŸ‡«πŸ‡· But first a WIP of the different meringues I are from Paris to Normandy and back. Yummmmm
πŸ‡«πŸ‡·My favorite snack while in France. No idea how many meringues I ate while in France. I should have counted. Enough for a diabetic coma when u add in the wine we drank like water. Ps no hangover. Supposedly the lack of sulphate a makes all the difference. 

 
πŸ‡«πŸ‡· From the Eiffel Tower our view was rain rain and more rain but those preordered tickets worked like a charm. 

 
πŸ‡«πŸ‡·Straight to the head of the blocks long admission line for a quick zip up the tower where it actually had the gall to rain on us!!😒     
   
πŸ‡«πŸ‡·The tracadero. Still Gray and rainy. 

 πŸ‡«πŸ‡·L’ecole militaire. No sun insight. 

πŸ‡«πŸ‡·Saturday at the Pompidou the views were amazing. The sun was finally out!!!  So was the art.  

  
πŸ‡«πŸ‡·Eiffel Tower on the left far far away. 

πŸ‡«πŸ‡·My favorite. Montmartre and Sacre Couer glowing in the morning sun. Yes we finally saw the sun after two days of rain. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜Š
   
πŸ‡«πŸ‡·The plaza in front of the Pompidou 

 
πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Lower level. Paris was out doing what Parisians do on a warm sunny fall day. Enjoying the city.  
 πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Bubble fun  
 πŸ‡«πŸ‡· I want one. The kids loved it. 
   

A few more from the fifth floor of the Pompidou.   


Interesting square with several kinds of buildings gothic to modern. Quite startling. There were very cool acrobats and a lot of street artists on the square. 
   
The wild assortment of buildings on the square next to the Pompidou.    
 Awesome art work in the fountain. Looks a lot like Nikki in the gArden a few years back at the Atlanta Botanical Society. 

  
 

One more drool over the meringues. Isn’t the cat face to adorable. I have to get these painted I think.  A little cerulean and yellow ochre will make them even more delicious. 
Thanks for reading.
