The Moulin Rouge (translation: The Red Windmill)

The arch landmark at night. It honours French soldiers especially during the Napoleonic Wars.
Place Vendome.. The Ritz Hotel (where Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed came from before their fatal accident) is in one of the buildings surrounding the square.

Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, a smaller arch located just west of the Louvre.
Place de la Bastille, with the July Column in the center, and the Opéra Bastille in the background. This was the location of the Bastille (a fortress-prison) that the Paris mob stormed into in 1789, marking the start of French Revolution.
The majestic Notre Dame cathedral made even more famous in literature by Victor Hugo's "The Hunchback of Notre Dame".
The cathedral with the rose window and flying buttresses in view. Amazing to think that this structure was constructed in 1160's.
Inside Notre Dame Cathedral.
Cathedral and me..
And at night...
Another early night picture of Eiffel Tower.
Père Lachaise cemetery in eastern Paris. This is where Jim Morrisson, Oscar Wilde, Chopin are buried.

Inside the Père Lachaise cemetery.
Oscar Wilde's grave. Lots of lipstick marks and writings from fans..
The strange-looking post-modern architecture of The Pompidou Center.. Looks unfinished and inside out, but intersting.
Canal Saint-Martin. The canal, commisioned by the great Napoleon, was opened in 1825 as an artificial waterway to supply Paris with water.
Small bridge over the St. Martin canal.
Dining with other Canadian and American tourists I met in Paris.
My dinner... salmon and mashed potatoes..
Entrance to Place des Vosges, the oldest square in Paris, located at the Marais section. Victor Hugo lived here.
