under paris skies.

We jump to another part of the world into the realm of blue Paris skies and lights, so well known not only by the Eiffel Tower, but because this is a city of love, where lonely hearts flock to meet.

I can see how easy it is to fall in love with the beautiful people you can encounteer there and even the French accent is music to your ears.
Life in the cafes is open for 100's to see.
So like many........
"I fell in love
I was a fool
Paris can be beautifully cruel
Paris can be a gay coquette and then forget
Strangers need to beware because in Paris. there is love in the air.
Fantastique! sympatique ! magnifique !

I wasn't smart and fell in love
under Paris skies
So watch what you do
The same can happen to you."

I think with all the history found in Paris, France, this will always be a place people will want to see and experience.

It can be a cold cruel place if you let it, cause lets face it, it attracts, as many big cities do, those who use it for their personal pleasures.

But the view is spectacular! and love for loves' sake, can blossom and grow .

I can almost see Maurice Chevalier and his walking stick, smiling, tipping his hat, wooing all the young ladies walking his way. I can see lots of flowers being sold to those who have found precious love.

I can see the horse drawn chariots being pulled on a clear winters' night with white snow flakes surrounding them, and the pretty rosy cheeked girls bundled in their furs smiling at their gentlemen friends.
Visions of Paris, never to be forgotten.

Lots of foot steps walked those once cobbled streets and if one listens closely,
One will never be bored under those historical
Paris skies.

Have a great day!

I have never been to Paris, but I would like to go, for many of the reason you mention. I, too, can never think of Paris without thinking of Maurice Chevalier. He seemed to personalize the good side of the city.

Sandy - When you visit old cities, like Paris,
you must remember or envisage stories like
les miserables. You must envisage
Napoleon.You must envisage Louis x1v
The air of Paris is full of history.
This is why people flock there.

Today's Paris is not like you discribe ! That was maybe like that 100 years ago ! Now it's a expensive, hectic city, with very unfriendly arrogant people, even the Frenchs don't like Paris, only for expositions !

BTW we celebrate the 150 years of Victor Hugo and "les Misérables" here in Waterloo, because he wrote it here. In my painting group we had to paint a picture representing something of "les Misérables" there is an exposition in the Wellington Museum and a lot of celebrations. The Miserables are played open air under the Waterloo Lion on the battle field for the moment.
Please don't comment on my comments here, I never come back to a blog where I had been, that would take too much time. but you can send me and email.
