Puttin' On The Ritz

Sorry, this was next door to the Ritz. Nevertheless, we attended a function at the Ritz Hotel in Paris (more about that later). Here are a few shots I took from inside. It was beautiful. I think this patio area was my favorite place in the hotel.

One of my partners in crime, Mary Kay, in a large seating area.

    Why do I feel like a hick...but that's ok, I like being a hick, but I'd check out Paris in a heartbeat!!! Lucky girl!!!

  3. Hi Donna
    What a wonderful journey you've done!

    I was in France in 2006, but only went to the south
    I went to meet the hometown of my grandfather.
    The village is called Oloron and is beautiful. It's in the French Pyrenees.

    Unfortunately we do not have enough money to go to Paris, but I hope one day to go.

    How have you been? How is your farm? Already started the heat?

    Here predicted rain for tomorrow.

    Warm greetings from Santiago de Chile
