VT Cruises Paris

I had lived in Paris once upon a time, always an American city in August at least, English heard everywhere.  For Americans, traveling to Europe is not so much in the cards anymore, too little cash for such things among so much plenty, the money we are told we have only to see it disappear.

These are limited interest videos I shot two weeks ago, with a few more coming.  I have tons of photos of Paris at night, as I am one of those PTSD non-sleeping types.

For those who won’t go or who can’t, this is just a few minutes of  the city.

  1. The sharp contrast between European and American cities can be seen in the differences between the architecture of churches and cathedrals. The stunning craftsmanship of those stone masons who built them in contrast to the squalid mega churches, made from converted pole barns, that mushroom up out of the American landscape like so many toad stools.
    I remember reading the book, “IS Paris Burning?” where the German general in charge of the army there, refused to set off the charges that would have destroyed much of the grand architecture. He was more of a humanitarian than Eisenhower or Churchill. He certainly had more class.
    I doubt I will ever visit Paris or anywhere else in Europe, although I would like to visit Germany, my ancestral home and find out if I still have relatives living there somewhere.

    • There was a British television series called Time Team that was at a location in Scotland very near Castle McDuff. They excavated a cave that was thought to be connected to the castle but found no evidence of such. I love the entire series of Time Team. RIP Mick Aston.

    • When you are in Scotland, perhaps you will have time to visit Caithness and Sutherland? My sister-in-law’s family is originally from the former. And the Selkirk Settlers were mostly from the latter, kicked off the Sutherland estates for some reason.
