Way back in 1997 I went to Paris for the first time. I was really young and didn’t have a lot of money so one of the few items I brought back to remember being in such an amazing place was a trinket about 3.5″ tall that looked like the Arc de Triomphe, painted with a substance that changes color with the weather. I kept it for a very long time. In fact it might still be somewhere around packed away with other items from the past.
I went back to Paris is 1999 with a friend of mine a little after I was married. My husband wasn’t able to come and I felt bad about leaving him home, but I was happy to hear Paris.
Last year I had the chance to get back to Paris. The first time in nearly 20 years. I also had the chance to get back to the Arc de Triomphe. I took photos, please enjoy. 🙂
