And now some visuals: view from le Pont des Arts

Admittedly, most of the time we wander around Paris we’ve got an apartment-hunting mindset, so we’re taking pictures of boring things like street signs and shopping districts so we can keep neighbourhoods organized in our heads.

That being said, these were taken at the end of our first day (Nov 4) as we fought jet-lag & US election curiousity to take in the view from the Pont des Arts.  It’s a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Seine, linking the Louvre on the right bank to the Academie Francaise (where pointy heads try to fight off nasty foreign words from further tainting the purity of the French language).
