Interesting Pictures?

I enjoyed the different daily photography focus for class. At times it was quite the challenge for me. I was surprised with the outcome of some photos snapped.

Taste bites in photos

I really enjoyed the experience of trying new foods. Although I did somehow order sardines at a Spanish Tapas restaurant that I really did not like! Mushed peas are mush.

Pere Lachaise Cemetery

July 14 - Exploring the cemetery wasa unique experience. Movies set scenes in cemeteries as very creepy. This cemetery looks different. I didn't see any open spaces yet it was a very peaceful place. Growing up with a cemetery next door created for me a sense of peace about cemeteries. Pere Lachaise is a park that provides shady paths for walking and exploring.

Notre Dame- Farewell dinner

July 15 - The cathedral of Notre Dame is amazing. The construction began in 1163 and was completed in 1345. It is the last day of class although traveling about London and Paris hardly seemed like class. The cruise was a great way to see the sights of Paris. Again the dinner was perfect and it was a fantastic evening to end my travels.
