a parisian tableau...

Of course any visit to Paris will necessitate the obligatory photograph of Eiffel Tower.

This was actually our closest approach during the entire week. We had intentions to get closer, and even planned an ascent. Alas, it just didn't happen.

We are such simple people. All we want, at least once in our lives, is to go to some restaurant somewhere, anywhere, anywhere in the world, some restaurant that sits atop some high place, get a table at the window, sit and look out over the view, and enjoy cocktails with umbrellas in them.

Is that too much to ask?

Paris, January 2009.
