Looking for Lisa...

Published July 4th, 2012

Four hours, working my way through Paris in search of someone called Lisa....... I found her eventually but, to be honest, the journey was the best bit.

The hunt begins...

The hunt for Lisa began as I stepped off the Eurostar at Paris's Gare du Nord station...

Shadow light

Light shades awaited me at my hotel - but there was still no sign of Lisa... :(

Ghosts

I wasn't alone in my search...

Parisien upshot

The Louvre Pyramid, designed by Pritzker Prize winner Ieoh Ming Pei, is enchanting - a bit like Lisa, I guess, but she was still to be found...

Chocolate cake

Nietzsche said that “for every man there exists a bait which he cannot resist swallowing.” I was hoping it was also true for women - Lisa especially...

Dalmatian

I found Lisa's dog but still there was no sight of her...

Wrong Lisa!

And, anyway, she was too preoccupied with her reflection in the pool...

Cloud cover creates the background for the Louvre Pyramid.

You'll be pleased to know that we aren't going to be looking for Lisa for very much longer at all. I promise! (Yes, I'm getting bored of it too....)

Getting serious...

The search had gone on for long enough. It was time to get serious and use the Spiderman net :-))

"A well-spent day brings happy sleep" (Leonardo da Vinci)

That's it. The End. Finished. Fin. Alla fine. Die Ende.

Yes, eventually I found her...

It was a well-spent (half) day of searching and, sure, the picture itself was a slight anti climax but, as they say, the real fun is in the journey and not the arriving.

Thanks for your patience along the way!
