This is not a theatre decked out
to appear like the Moulin Rouge.
This is the real deal and the best

In a few weeks, October 3 to be precise,
we are going to be thrown out of gear
for a few days as we go back to
Daylight Savings Time
which will last until then the
1st Sunday of April.
In 1976 I set off on my overseas trip
as was the norm in those days.
I spent a month touring around Great Britain,
before heading over to Canada,
my real destination.
In 2016 we returned to Great Britain,
for a few days, prior to crossing
the English Channel, from Dover,
for our European holiday.
It was not until we were home a few weeks
that I began thinking of going back
where my Grandfather served during World War I.
In late May 2017, I again landed at Heathrow
where I boarded a London bound train to
St Pancras International Station.
At St Pancras, I boarded the Eurostar
for my trip across to France,
disembarking at Lille.
From Lille, it was only a 45-minute
train ride south to Arras.
My tribute to my Grandfather,
Another tribute is one to all…
…the women who…
…served in World War I.
Looking up to the top of the Burj Khalifa.
Can you see how the concrete in
the middle foreground of this image,
(bottom) looks a bit like a kidney bowl?
My first image…looking up…was taken
while walking along that area.
The London Eye could be easily mistaken for that.
Ben does not appear that big from atop the Eye.

Upon reaching Paris, I had three destinations which
I have wanted to visit for many, many years.
In no particular order, they were the Eiffle Tower,
from which the above image was captured.
Notre Dame Cathedral.

Socialising in Paris…
…definitely fond of (each other’s) company.
