Paris

This is a peaceful park in the 8th arrondissement.

As you walk around, you see various follies and statues of famous men with swooning muses reclining at their feet.

I especially wanted to find the statue of Chopin, one of my piano heroes.  We found it just behind a children’s play area.

Not the Polonaise again, Frederic.  It gives me a headache.

The city has gone to some trouble to plant flowers everywhere and we’re thoroughly enjoying April in Paris.

  1. Bonjour,

    J’ai habité dans le 17° arrondissement pas loin du parc monceau pendant mes vingt premières années ! J’ai traversé ce parc par sa grande allée centrale pour me rendre chez un professeur de piano qui habitait dans le 8° ! J’ai joué aussi sur les gros tas de sable … Ce parc a pour moi une odeur inoubliable et un charme inégalable …

    Amicalement,

    Brigitte Brigitte

  2. Brigitte, bienvenue! à mon blog et merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire très gentil.

    I’m so happy you shared your lovely memories of Parc Monceau — what a wonderful place to walk and play and what a delightful ‘childhood’ you must have had in that beautiful part of Paris.

    Such special memories — thank you again for taking the time to share them here. I loved reading them (and apologise that most of my reply is in English).

    Cheers and best wishes from Paris 🙂
