Before we get too far into the new year I thought I would share a few more holiday photos from Paris. Most of these were shot around the Christmas market at Trocadéro.Merchants line either side of the fountain selling the usual: ornaments, hats, vin chaud and other goodies.Just above the fountain area you can see the blown up igloo, and next to it is the ice skating rink, or patinoire du Trocadéro.Another view of the ice rink off to the left.A shot of Palais Royal. You can walk around here and admire the shop windows, continuing toward the Jardin du Palais Royal. Once through the garden you’ll come out near rue Vivienne.A peek inside a restaurant on rue Vivienne. If you continue along this street you will eventually come to Galerie Vivienne which is lovely during the holidays, decorated with lights.A nice little space to walk through with a few places to stop for a quick bite and some shopping.Or simply admire the lights, which is what I did. I think I’ll be sad to see the holiday decorations go as they make everything seem so cheery and bright. Paris can get a bit gray during the winter and I swear it seems to rain at least once a day. I am, however, looking forward to les soldes (the sales), which start January 11th!
