Parc Monceau

After touring a new museum I'll tell you about in another post, we wanderedl through Parc Monceau which was just around the corner.  We had not been there before and it was charming.  It is surround by magnificent mansions and we imagined the lives of these people secluded behind the lace curtains and fabulous passementeries.  After enjoying the sunlight and flowers we decided to find an exit.  Imagine our surprise as we turned a corner to see the Arc de Triompe down the street!

Cat Walk

We were enjoying the magician's show on the bridge behind Notre Dame to the Ile St Louis when I noticed this wowan walking behind him.  The cigarette and all black outfit was so french.  Then I saw she was taking her cat for a stroll on a leash- c'est perfect!
p.s.- It was a very warm late afternoon but she was fully clothed in black ;-)

Altar Piece

By chance we were passing this church when we noticed a sign telling of the Oxford Choir preforming in less than 15 minutes.  We scurried inside and sat to wait for the choir.  We had never stepped inside this austere church but the inside was glorious! The three angels straining to encircle the Madonna looked so real it was hard to believe they were stone.  It was very dynamic and powerful.  The choir was just as heavenly!  Do you know where we were?
