    Thanks you so much for our daily tour of Paris. Your blog is a highlight of my morning. So happy that you are both back on your French adventure. Wish we could come and visit. However, the U.K. is terrified of the Beta variant coming from France ( that’s the South African variant) as the Astra Zeneca jab which has been used in the majority of adults is less effective against it.

      Bonjour Antonia, we will miss you guys this time! Have already walked past some memories over by the Place des Etats-Unis. This virus is just a curse for all of us. We’re trying to be careful!

    Hi, the flowers are called Baby Sage, also Blackcurrant sage, Graham’s sage, and Lemmon’s sage—that’s according to my flower identification app, “PictureThis. I’m not smart enough to know this without it, which is the reason I have it.

    I am sorry you missed La Tour, but it sounds like you had an enjoyable day. The food at the museum cafe doesn’t look appetizing and most chef’s would say that the presentation is an important part of any meal, I think.

    I read recently on another blog that one can download the French Health Pass app for Americans to a mobile device. Once you fill in your info, you can then go to a pharmacy in France, show the pharmacist the health pass on your mobile device, your CDC cards and the pharmacist will then complete your health pass. I believe the article said the health pass was then on your mobile device and you could show that for entry.

    As always, your photos are wonderful!

    The flower is baby sage.

    When the cyclers roar down the street and pass the spectators, is there a charge in the air. Or is that only in my imagination? It looks like addresses on the napkin in your last picture. The addresses end with a series of 5 sets of 2 numbers. What are those number? It’s good the way the businesses and homes find ways to add a little green to their buildings and sidewalks.

      There is a bit of a charge in the air when Le Tour passes by but they do it like 10 or 11 times. The numbers are the telephone number.

    I am glad your weather is warmer now. Rained last night and this morning here.
    Thanks for sharing your pictures. It’s amazing how all the greenery grows down the side of those buildings.
    Such beautiful architecture on the buldings in Paris!

      Thanks for all the info from so many of you. We’ve gotten the app on our phones and now off to the pharmacy this morning to see if we can get a “willing” pharmacist to help us.
