The above photos are of an absolutely beautiful restaurant in Paris, "Julien" on rue du Faubourg St-Dennis, just a short walk from our apartment. The decor was so "old time Paris". Besides that, we had a fantastic meal of salmon and a roasted chicken with mushroom sauce. Enjoy the photos below.
And then, of course, for some reason, most Americans want to go to the cemetery looking for a particular grave site.
We made the trek to Pere Lachaise cemetery and thanks to the kind efforts of a Parisian, he led us to several interesting monuments and then to Jim Morrison's resting place. By far, the largest crowd this day in the cemetery was standing around this grave. Understandably, they were all Americans, of many different ages.
This is the monument to the artist Gericault (1791-1824). It was quite beautiful and our French "guide" for our visit, had a strong connection to the artist. When I told him I did not recognize the name, he asked me to study him when I had the chance. He seemed quite proud of this Frenchman.
His most famous painting The Raft of the Medusa is engraved on the stone.
