The Carrousel Garden of the Tuileries, right outside the Louvre. My friend and I had spent several hours inside the Louvre taking in as much as we could, decided to call it for the morning, and get on with our day. The one week granted to us in Paris made us think wisely of our time. The Tuileries run along the Seine between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. Stepping out of the museum into the cold early afternoon air was exhilarating, especially with a few moments of what seemed to be rare sunshine.
As we walked through a short piece of the gardens I noted such a sense of relaxation and people just being people.
The photo above is the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel.
Having a great time. Wish you were here.
