I Went to Paris!

When I was about 14 years old the Mona Lisa was loaned to the United States.  It was exhibited in Washington, D.C.  My grandmother, Fairie, took me on a bus trip to see the famous painting.  We ate at a restaurant that had many oil paintings on the walls.  I never forgot that trip.

It became my life's dream to visit the Mona Lisa at her home, the Louvre, in Paris.  In 2011, fifty years later, I accomplished that dream.  With my dear friend, Diane Lolli, I got to see the Mona Lisa at home in the most beautiful city in the world.  I will never be the same.  Love always changes you.

The pictures shown here are the church at Montmartre and Versailles.
