Ostensibly the purpose of our trip was to help a relative travel from his Paris apartment to his home in Chicago, but my wife, Keven, and I would use any excuse to spend a week in Paris in April. We spent our week walking in parks, museums and stores and eating delicious food. A highlight of the trip was meeting up with friends who took the train from London and joined us for a day exploring the gardens of Versailles both on foot and in a rowboat which we rented at the Grand Canal. One of my favorite activities on any trip is taking photos of people and places unique to their environment. Here are some of my favorites from this trip.
