Le shopping

Our goal was to visit the great department stores in the Opera district, Printemps and Galeries Lafayette. But we had to visit many other shoppes and arcades first.
Thus




















And thus




















We passed by the old Opera Garnier; I paused to point out
the Cafe de la Paix, but no one in our party, other than me,
is into the coffee/cafe thing

















At length, we got to Printemps















Explored it















A bit















Then opted for the more impressive Galeries Lafayette















Whose central dome would be the main attraction
in any church, opera house, or museum...besides,
Galeries Lafatette has an Amorini's





















And visited the roof for some great views--despite the
clouds--of the city
















Opera Garnier, other side
















Route of the day: Notre Dame















Pompidiou















Les Halles and St. Eustace















And other old friends




















More skyline















The great dome itself















Us, there

We had been to Paris a half dozen times and had never stopped at the grand stores. We just are not shoppers...history is out interest. The first time Diana traveled with us, she made us go "shopping." It was Christmas and the grand stores were all decorated and were gorgeous. I did not buy anything, but it was fun to see the elegant decorations, and we were glad we had gone.
