PARIS – Our final day in Paris started with a wonderful visit to a very large market in the Bastille district. The vendors featured meat, fresh fish, fruit, and vegetables along with plenty of clothing items.
The group walked the grounds on a gorgeous Sunday morning and enjoyed the open air shopping. Souvenirs to take back home were purchased and a few goodies were picked up for immediate consumption.
Wabash student David Newhart ’15, a French major, who has been along on this trip has expressed an interested in photography so we handed the camera over to him. The photos in this album, with just a couple of exceptions, were shot by David.
The biggest part of the day was given to exploration, shopping, and final memories. Bob and Judy Myers found the grave of Jim Morrison. Bob and C.K. Wedgeworth spent an afternoon in Luxembourg Gardens. The Koliseks went shopping on Champs D’Elysees. A few of us just walked the streets soaking in the atmosphere or doing a bit of shopping. Mike Butler found Harry’s Bar – one of his goals for the Paris trip.
Late afternoon a portion of the group at a typical Parisian cafe near the Seine for wine, beer, pizza and Parisian desserts.
The group is still raving about the week in France. Au revoir!
