Paris in the Winter
Beautiful, but freezing cold...!

Even though they were experiencing record cold temperatures throughout Europe, it didn't deter us from seeing the city and enjoying the sites!  We just bundled up, covering every exposed part of our bodies as well as we could...and, headed out.
We did find ourselves getting on the Metro (subway) much more often than we would have in warmer weather...but, that, in itself, was an experience!
One time it was so crowded on the Metro that I found myself totally squeezed among a packed group of mostly men all standing up. I had to make my way through them to get to my friend.  It was probably a great day for pickpockets...but, not so much fun for this 63 yr. old woman in a foreign country!

I could not wait for you to show pictures and definitely did not expect to see you deep in snow. You should have come to Oklahoma. We have had unseasonably warm weather. Let's see, Paris? Oklahoma? Paris? Oklahoma? Hard choice I know.

Paris is on my bucket list; though I'd like to go sometime in the summer. We still have loads of snow here in Alaska, but you still gotta get out and enjoy it!
