This is a photo of a parking lot in Hawaii, taken last year.
It saddens me that terrorists have wreaked havoc in Paris, France. It’s no longer a safe city to visit. French soldiers patrol the tourist sites with guns, ready to shoot and kill. You won’t see that in Hawaii, where there is peace and harmony.
I visited Paris for two weeks in November 1969. I was single and 23 years old. Though it was cold and damp, I had such a wonderful time, seeing the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, the stained glass windows at Notre Dame Cathedral, and the water of the River Seine. Every morning, I would leave my small room on the Left Bank and buy a crepe suzette, a croissant, and a café au lait for breakfast. It was amusing to see a French man, riding his bicycle with a beret on his head and a loaf of bread under his arm. Oh, Paris was so interesting and lovely.
Too bad it is now too dangerous to visit that city.
