This first photo is obvious. It's a sign for the famous Metro. I took a few of these around town when I saw them.
This next one is at the Eiffel Tower. Notice what they are selling and the language it's written in? Ice cream and hot dogs. Can't get anymore American than that, and I'm not sure they have a French word for hot dog that sounds quite like it does in English.
This next photo is the marquis at Cafe Le Dome. Apparently a great place for snacking and nonstop service. I love it!
How about the next photo which is Cafe Le Dome's awning, but around the corner. Apparently I can take my evening cocktail away. Yes, I would like my wine to go please.
We did visit Ireland on this trip, but we didn't hit the Parisian Irish pub we found here. Apparently we could watch live Rugby games in this pub. Did you notice the American flag in the window?
Here is one of the chocolate shops I came across. They were all closed in both London and Paris. So disappointing. Look how sad that woman looks as she's walking away. I shared her pain.
If your a designer type gal, you will like the next photo. I have a real Louis Vuitton bag I purchased from a street vendor when I visited Manhattan. Well, that's what the vendor told me. He wouldn't lie, would he? I paid $39 for that bag!
I happen to have been fortunate enough to stay at the Waldorf Astoria when I was in Manhattan so I'm not sure of the history of this hotel in the following photo, but I believe it to be named for John Jacob Astor's second wife Madeleine Talmage Force who was 18 when she married John Jacob Astor who was 47 at the time. John Jacob Astor built the famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in 1897. It was the first hotel to offer room service and changed the hotel industry forever. So there is a little history lesson for you.
We all recognize the next photo. I saw more Starbuck's than McDonald's. They were everywhere we went and we could always count on them for internet access.
Last but not least is this fabulous cafe with a wonderful huge black awning. I love the lettering. As always, thanks for stopping by for a visit.
