Yesterday was a day in Paris, over on Eurostar at 6am, back by 9pm. Amazing how much you can see in a day, even the Mona Lisa. So here are some of the pictures I took in Paris.
All the buildings in the city have these lovely wrought iron balconies, so many designs and all so pretty. Have lots of photos.
Venus di Milo at the Louvre and the wide tree lined boulevards.

Today was very relaxed with a couple of visits, the villages of Bibury and Tetbury. Very picturesqe towns. Here in the Cotwolds even new homes have to be built from the local limestone and be in the correct style. So often the only way to tell how old a building is is to check out how clean or dirty the stone work is.
These are some of the lovely cottages in Bibury and the river through the trout farm.
The village of Tetbury, a lovely market town where we had lunch
