    Its Paris, what isn't there to like.
    My wife and I had our Honeymoon there 25 years ago. We try to visit Paris now and again.

    An astronomy conference in Paris. A perfect combination
    Sounds like you made the most of it too. Meeting such important people in this field. Like many others here, yes, I am soooo envious right now. Thanks for the update.

    Thanks for the pictures too.

    Hi David. Thanks for the great thread. This must have been a fabulous visit and astronomy themed technical exposition for you. And, your images were most beautiful. Thanks for sharing these with us David, and the kindest of regards.
