Place Des Victoires

One night in Paris, Jaclyn was feeling sick and stayed in the hotel room. I decided to wander. I walked for hours all around the city and at one point, emerged into the Place Des Victoires (pictured below). I thought it was a beautiful sight, the buildings curved around to nestle the magnificent stature centered. I briefly stopped and appreciated how far from home I was, how lovely Paris was at night, and then more practically, wondered where I was.
I decided it was time to walk back to the hotel and walked for another 30 minutes and once again emerged into the Place Des Victoires, this time I was facing the horse’s face. I walked another 15 minutes and walked right into the Place Des Victoires again, this time facing the horse’s behind.

This wasn’t the first time in my life that I was completely lost, but it was the first time I was so lost that I was just going in circles! Growing up, I saw episodes of Scooby Doo, where he and Shaggy got lost and walked by the same tree over and over again, but never thought that could happen in real life, until that moment, where every path I chose took me back to Place Des Victoires. I’ve been feeling like that night lately, but its not a bad thing. 

This weekend we’re heading up to Times Square and spending the night at the Westin

I inherited a ton records from Jim & spent last Sunday cleaning all the dust off them, the records sounded absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, Jac & Win developed a horrific cough after inhaling all the dust particles.  Its a small price to pay for some great sounding classic rock vinyl!
