La Ville Lumiere

.............. I was thinking about Paris and had to share her beauty.

It was 1828 when Paris began lighting the Champs-Elysees with gas lamps. It was the first city in Europe to do so, and gained the name 'La Ville Lumiere' ...... The City of Light.

Paris, she is a beauty every day and at any hour, but the flicker of the lights at night will take your breath away.

Four years ago Richard took me to Paris and we explored the elegance and beauty. I especially loved wandering in the evening with the lights glowing and could have easily walked until dawn just to drink it all in.

With a glass of wine in hand, we sat at an outdoor cafe and watched 
the lights dance up the legs of the Eiffel Tower. 

Paris days are spectacular. Paris nights are magical.
