Another day in Parisdise

My niece Madeline arrived in the midst of the May 1 demonstrations in Paris. Even with the streets closed off and forgetting her map she managed to find us at Martine's apartment. With the windows open on this glorious day we could hear 'La Marseillaise' reverberating down the narrow street.

People were having picnics everywhere, even on the bridges.

This window display seemed a little OCD...

Love this old building but what do you suppose 'Paris American Art' is, exactly?

The front of Serge Gainsbourg's house covered with graffiti.
Inside it's the same as the day he died.

Helmut, street artist and his work.

Walking home through the Louvre pleasantly exhausted...
