After the wedding in England some of us headed over to Paris for a few days. Things were going well until I was parted from my everything wallet - passport, cash, and some. The last couple of days were spent rushing round Paris dealing with admin and legalities to enable me to at least get back to London in the interim. Things could have been much much worse, and fortunately I was travelling with family, who helped me out in a big way. Because things were interrupted I feel as though things have been left undone, and I have unfinished business with Paris........

Never mind any wierd looks you might get, the best way to look at some paintings is to lie on the floor and look up at the ceiling :-)
