My week in Paris has come to an end. I wish I had planned more time here, but alas the adventure must continue.
A relaxed sophistication envelopes Paris. The ancient history of this beautiful city makes one realize that we have been here a very long time and that we will be here for a long time to come.
No one rushes about with coffees-to-go. The Parisians have turned having a café into an art form; to be taken in a relaxed manner, seated at a quaint bistro table in one of the cafés you find on every street corner. Everyone smells wonderful; a person can get intoxicated just walking down a sidewalk when everyone is headed to work in the morning! Everyone looks wonderful with effortless casual elegance. Nary did I see a pair of yoga pant clad legs saunter past with the requisite water bottle in hand.
If you visit Paris:
- Walk everywhere as much as you can.
- Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
- Spend an afternoon in Parc Monceau.
- Plan a whole day at Château de Versailles.
- Visit the Musée du Louvre in the evening.
With love I say, “Au revoir Paris. Until we meet again!”
