Last week, coming back from Iceland, Gail visited with me in Paris. I knew she was a total Internet addict –just like me– so she got her laptop out, and got on the wi-fi.
I know Gail from her blog and from flickr and we exchanged quite a bit although we had never met. When I picked her up, near the metro station, I recognised her right away, not because I’d seen photos of her, but because she was standing next to a carrousel … taking photos. I did take a photo of that, but she turned at the wrong moment, just like birds do…
Talking about birds, you don’t want to miss her birds photos, because they are stunning.
After a lot of Internet mingled with a lot of talking, we went out with our cameras. Let me tell you that Gail doesn’t travel light, as far as cameras are concerned.
Then we walked to Champ de Mars, where the Eiffel Tower is and stopped there for more photos.
That day, as it didn’t rain, crowds of teeanagers were there, smoking, having picnics and drinking booze. My daughter says that is the way it goes every single evening.
I must admit I was surprised.

I too had to take one, and Gail showed me a new trick 😉
We walked some more and finally stopped for dinner. I had intended to take Gail towards the river Seine but got sidetracked and we finally landed where I had not intended to go. 😉
But that’s me, no sense of direction whatsoever, particularly at night.
Gail treated me to a lovely dinner
and we walked back home, passing by the twinkling Eiffel Tower.
Then we got back home, blogged and talked till the wee hours…
The next morning, blog trouble started with my blogs being down, which is why it took me till today to post about Gail’s visit.
