Paris, New and Old

Here are two photos from the Rue Rivoli in Paris, from my vacation last October. First, the tower of St. James (formerly part of a church, which is long gone):

 

I like the close proximity and similarity of the Metro (subway) and McDonald’s signs in the photo below:

    Fr. Green – Just a side note about McDonalds. On a rather small island in the Mraiannas called Guam, I spent some rather unusual time yet for such a small place it had a big McDonalds right next to the JFK High School. Out front the prseident had his hand extended to the people of Guam, Next door an even bigger and much more colorful Ronald McDonald struck the same pose. They had gotten their shipping orders mixed up and evidently the largest one in the world at the time went there and a rather smaller one went to Japan. Ronald is every where.
