I took most of these pictures while a student at the Sorbonne, University of Paris, France. In the fall of 1972, I enrolled in French classes offer to foreigners and enrolled again in spring classes of 1973. I took advantage of student discounted excursions to go to Loire Valley, Mont Saint-Michel, Rome, and Naples. Later during the spring break of 1987 as a French teacher at Odessa High School, Texas, I was one of the teachers who led a student tour to France that included Avignon, Nîmes, and Paris. The original images were color slides that I scanned to digital images using Nikon Coolscan IV.
