Bonjour, Paris!

As I post this, I am in the midst of my first trip to the City of  Light. Since my hopes and dreams are always flooded with expectations fueled by the movies, here are the people (especially one Audrey Hepburn) I fully expect to see here:

"Funny Face" Audrey Hepburn
"Charade" Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn

"How To Steal A Million" Audrey Hepburn
"Paris When it Sizzles" Audrey Hepburn

"Love in the Afternoon" Audrey Hepburn

"Sabrina" Audrey Hepburn

"Breathless" Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg

"Ninotchka" Garbo and Melvin Douglas

"Gigi" Leslie Caron

"Victor Victoria" Robert Preston and Julie Andrews

"A Woman of Paris" Edna Purviance and Adolphe  Menjou
"An American in Paris" Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron

"Gay Purr-ee" Jaune Tom and Mewsette

"Casablanca" Bogey and Bergman
While I haven't exactly seen them, I have felt them everywhere. And, call me crazy, but I think I heard someone whisper this:

Ah, a kiss is just a kiss, and a sigh is just a sigh after all (especially in Paris).

Whoops - must go! I think I just saw a thin woman in dark glasses turn a corner..... must follow.....

p.s If I find that "Ninotchka" hat, I'm buying it and wearing it!

I hope you have a wonderful time in Paris and find the car to pick you up at "Midnight".
J'aime Paris, I hope you find them behind any of those wonderful walls.
