I have a special connection to France and Paris. This site will contain photos and stories from my frequent trips to Paris and other parts of France, as well as my random France related writings, discoveries, recipes, links and ...stuff.
Every time I go to Paris I search for vestiges of the past. Here in the Tuillerie I found one in this old water pump. You hold onto the little brass nob and wind it round and round, finally the water starts gushing out. I wish I could take it home with me.
