Okay. Back to Paris! So... here's some photos from our totally amazingly great trip.

Here at the Louvre, soldiers armed with semi-automatic weapons, make one feel cozy and safe!

We walked by this sign about seven or eight times. None of us could figure out what it means. Is it bad interface or is it art?

Note: Republic of Tinselman Citizen Foo has directed us to a similar sign on flickr, where, in a user comment, the symbol is define. They represent "muster points": a place to go, and be accounted for, in case of an emergency.

The Metro is great: each stop is unique, and the majority of it isn't as modern as this.

This is a view from the lowest level of the Eiffel Tower. The highest level is unbelievably high, especially considering it was built around 1900 between 1888 and 1889 for the 1889 World's Fair.

Parisians tend to leave trash in places where a trash can seems to belong. I saw this type of thing in one or two places.

Paris07

There's no end to beauty in Paris. It's practically overwhelming.
