It is unusual for me to arise early in Paris because of jet-lag, but this trip was different, so when I got up the only thing open was local bakeries:
There was no traffic, no one at the Metro station at Passy:
Getting to the Passy station gave me a nice view of the Eiffel, as did riding the # 6 train across the river:
I re-emerged at the Abbesses station, and walked up to the Butte Montmartre, my favorite place for meditation and viewing the city:
Here are several views of the Montmartre district, showing the climb involved and where I was headed, just in time for listening to a nuns' choir sing their morning devotionals:
After the cathedral, the view of the city in the morning light was very fine, here is the Notre Dame's towers (center of photo) and the Eiffel.
It was a great start to a very fine day! Thanks for coming along. Have a great day too, please.
