“Parc des Buttes-Chaumont”
Paris, France. June 2018 (15 photos)
This is Part 6 of my France 2018 photo series, and also Part 14 of my Europe 2018 photo series.
Now that I’ve posted from every country I visited in Europe during my 7 weeks there, most recently Germany, I thought I’d revisit those countries in no particular order.
Let’s start with some photos I took whilst wandering around Paris in the Spring. These were all taken in the general area east of Le Marais. Le Marais was featured in a previous post of this series.
“Palais des Glaces”
“Cimetière du Père Lachaise”
I might put a separate post together later for Père Lachaise.
Germaine Tillion (1907-2008) was a French ethnologist, best known for her work in Algeria in the 1950s on behalf of the French government. A member of the French resistance during WW2, she spent time in the Ravensbrück concentration camp.

That’s a mermaid on the left and a fish with legs on the right.
“Villa de l’Ermitage”
“La Fontaine d’Henri IV”
“Parc de Belleville”
Offering beautiful views across a vineyard to Montmartre, I was there for about 20 minutes admiring the view and eating some pastries I’d brought along. Two women came walking by. I didn’t see another person during my time there at all. I guess it still is possible to find local secrets in a big city.
