Even statues have to wear a scarf!


That's it, after a few days in cold Boston, here is time for me to go back to... cold Paris! When you read this I'll hopefully be flying towards my beautiful city, ready to start a new round of Paris photos. I did not have much time to read all your comments these past days (that is also what vacations are about, aren't they?!) but I'll catch up tomorrow... Again, a happy new year for everyone. We want a booming economy in 2010, no depressions!

  1. Have a safe flight to Paris, Eric and welcome backk in your city!
    WOW, I did not think Boston was that snowy! Thanks for the evidence :)
    There is no snow in Paris at the moment but that's cold for sure! Today I felt the cold even more than the one I experienced in the Alps, at a higher altitude. Much more, which always amazes me but that's a true feeling.

  2. Get home safely and stay warm! Trust you had a great time on this side of the pond. Please feel free to take a break whenever you need to—just as long as you come back to your faithful francophile followers!

  5. Eric, always enjoy your picture of Paris.

    Just to let you know, a Buddhist statue in Bangkok have their costume changed 3 times a year depending on the weather. Pretty cool.

  6. I thought you were in Brussels because the little boy looked like Manikin Pis--sorry for the spelling--then I saw he was covered up. Ever so chic Parisian in his colorful scarf, tho.

  10. Why didn't the person who wrapped this little fellow in a scarf also clean him up a bit? He's dusty. OMGoodness, I sound like my mother!
    Welcome home, Eric.

  13. I think I'll need more than a cute scarf to keep me warm when j'arrive this Friday Eric! Brrr, but it's below freezing here in Birmingham as well so I'll just be happy to duck in many cafes for wine to stay warm in Paris!

    Hope to see you next week in a very toasty bistro! :)

  17. I only just found your site. I love your photos!!! I am coming to Paris for 48 hours in March and can't wait. I only came for the first time last summer and loved your city!!

    I am putting together a little post for my blog on Paris for later this month or beginning of Feb and then a follow up one in March. Are you ok for me to include your blog?

    Salut!

  18. What a great photo -- and sense of humor. Everytime I look at it, it makes me smile.

    @Eric..."I did not have much time to read all your comments" Oh NO, you aren't reading this nonsense. We did not expect you to while you were on vacation. You are so sweet -- isn't he everyone? I hope I didn't make you blush.

  19. @sckhoo...Merci for the link to the Emerald Buddha. That was interesting.

    @Wren...I think that is grafitti on the little cherub.

  22. Not only was it cold in Boston but you got to experience quite a bit of snow! Just when I thought it was going to end it would start all over again. Boston is a lovely city while dusted with snow - but it can't hold a candle to Paris:)
    Safe journey!
    And thank you for continuing to bring us our daily fix while on your vacation - how very generous of you!
