Paris scènes, quatre: Montmartre

Marie and Norm arrived Saturday night, and on Sunday we were off again, briefly visiting Pere Lachaise and then longer at Montmartre. It was a beautiful sunny day, and it seemed all of Paris was out to enjoy the weather and the sites.
At Pere Lachaise: "Hi-Yo, Silver!"




















At Pere Lachaise, another curiosity















Moving right along Metro Line #2














Best gelato ever, so far, seriously: Amorino's, in Montmartre















Pistachio, we have been told, is the flavor that separates the
great gelatos from the merely good; Amorino's pistachio was
the best ever, by far; the mango and coconut great, the
raspberry intense



















Van Gogh lived here, 1886-88; with his brother,
Theo





















Les Invalides from afar















Super-size me!

One of my least favorite churches














But the views are nice...city scene, Pompidou














Notre Dame de Paris; and more















Us

















The four of us, taken by a kind stranger














Planning ahead for Penelope

That's a great carousel! We received your first postcard today--Penelope loved see all the "castles"--aka cathedrals.
