In the Spring of 2000 I went to Paris for a little over two weeks. I spent a few days in New York, both coming and going, checking into Seido Karate Honbu for some training. My friends Sue and John Perry were staying in Paris, and they had found a comfortable room for me in the 9th Arrondissement, for only $28 per night with its own facilities. It was called Hotel du Marche, and had a quaint cafe in the courtyard with two or three tables. I spent most of my time in Paris wandering the streets, visiting museums, eating fabulous food and going on at least one crazy tour around the Champs-Élysées. I also visited Mimi, the sister of former painting student Cynthia Edmonds. Mimi took me to many of the art galleries on Rue Bonaparte and elsewhere. We climbed Notre Dame Cathedral, and spent many many hours at the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre. These photos were taken during that trip, a small group culled from over a thousand images.
