Memories of Paris Carousel

Closing my eyes and remembering taking this picture of the lovely carousel in Paris! It was so enchanting, oh wait,
I can hear the music too!. Enjoy....
p.s. this was taken outside of the Hotel de Ville, "city hall " on Rue de Rivoli. There was a majestic ceremony of men in uniforms on horseback in the background of the carousel.

Ooooh, lovely! I used to live there. I miss it so. Is this the one by the Eiffel tower or the one over by Montmartre?

Definitely Gorgeous!! I always loved the carousels. My favorite memory was at Lincoln Park on the carousel with my cousin once a year treat.

Now I recognize it! BTW, it's still the Hotel de Ville -- that means "city hall." It's the mayor's office. I hope you stopped into the BHV across the street!

Another reason to visit Paris. I was there over a decade ago, and want to visit it again.

Who does not love a carousel!! I am sure everyone has nice memories when they were children. And I bet everyone, no matter what age, would enjoy a ride today.... especially this one!! Do you want to go for a ride?
