Bonjour! Im still out of the country!! But will be back soon!! Four years ago I was here in Paris! I’m here again but wanted to share some photos from the last time I was here since I never posted them!
I’ll go ahead and state the obvious! The Eiffel Tower!
There was this huge PEACE exhibit… It was amazing!! There was this huge piece of plexi-glass with the word “Peace” in every language in the world… Breathtaking!
A famous Metro station… (I can’t remember what movie it was in!! If you know, please leave it in the comments!!)Lori is on the left… I am on the right!
You do not want to know how early we had to wake up to dance around the Louvre like crazy people…with no one there! haha!!
Notre Dame Cathedral … more interestingly… Where I stood next to Yao Ming… Would you believe… as TALL as he is… I didn’t notice until 400 people in the square turned around and starting taking pictures of me… I smiled and posed… got my pen out to sign autographs…….*crickets*….. but they weren’t having it!! I mean, I’m LACY DAGERATH! HA! Kidding!! Psht! No one knows me! What really happened was… we just about got MOBBED because they all started walking toward us while taking pictures!! When I turned around I saw Yao standing next to me… and let me just tell you… That guy is TALL… I mean… You know he’s tall because he’s 7ft 6in… but you don’t realize how tall THAT is until you’re standing NEXT to the guy… I’m 5ft 6in… if that gives you any idea… ha! The interesting part was that we were both from Houston (Well… he isn’t originally… but you get my point)… and the BEST part of the whole thing…was watching him climb limb by limb into the smallest. car. ever. HA! I was too busy picking my jaw off the floor to take pictures… hahaa Ohhh the memories!
Okay.. moving on…
Montmartre – Basilica of Sacre-Coeur The photo on the left is the Basilica… the two photos on the right is the view from the Basilica… the top photo is the left and the bottom photo is the right… I hope that makes sense.
A view of the Eiffel Tower from the Seine River
The original Statue of Liberty on the right… (A little history for you… Did you know that the Statue of Liberty in NYC was a gift to the US from France?)
*notice the people standing at the base of the statue on the left… Then notice how small the statue looks against the Eiffel Tower* Amazing! My mom took a similar picture to mine on the right… many years ago!
