Contador attacks, finishes third

The Tour reached the last mountain stage today and Alberto Contador attacked from the start, but was unable to hold the lead at the end.  He did succeed in removing the yellow jersey from Thomas Voeckler onto Andy Schleck.  Two more stages to go, the last being here in Paris on Sunday.

We explored the local areas of the city again. The first shot is the fountain at the Pompidou Center of Modern Art.  It's an interesting variety of random shapes and colors in a long shallow pool.

This is the view of the street where we are living.  The entry to our abode is on the left of the street where the heavy ivy is growing,

My photo of Gino taking a photo in the Parc de Louis XIII, where we followed by a touring group of German tourists, accidentally, of course. Yes, we are still wearing jackets in a quite coolish summer day.

And a photo taken by Gino of me by the reflecting pool and fountain at the entry to the Louvre, just a walk down the Seine from here.

I'm still a little bit jet-lagged, so a short entry here, but there will be more to report tomorrow.

It certainly sounds like you are keeping busy and making the best of every minute you're there. I'm enjoying the travelogues.
