Great vacation in Paris and Edinburgh...
Bad people really don't need to know your house will be empty.
The police alerted its patrols that nobody should be inside for several weeks.
At the Arc de Triomphe, I asked and found there WAS an elevator and saved climbing hundreds of steps to the top.
Well worth going up if only to look down at the "interesting" traffic madly circling below!
It was said to be "close" to the Eiffel Tower.

There were pleasant cool days and nights overseas, and some spotty rain in Scotland.

Sitting and relaxing, I saw the billboard and gave it a twist.
