Paris

People may talk about the loveliness of Paris in spring, but I can attest: it’s wonderful in summer. I decided to go for an evening stroll, starting at the Louvre Museum.

Paris-1

The museum campus is adjacent to Jardin des Tuileries, a park I often visit in my daydreams.

Paris-2

I’m convinced that the French have mastered the “art of lounging”—such effortless and sophisticated relaxation. They look as if they don’t have a care in the world! I’d like a life lesson in that, please.

Leaving the park, I passed over Pont des Arts where locks inscribed with names of lovers have overtaken the pedestrian bridge. I continued westward along La Seine, amused by how fun it must be to casually play sports in the middle of the city.

Paris-3

After finding treats at a boulangerie along Rue Saint Dominique, I beelined for the Eiffel Tower. It was an idyllic picnic!

The view of the Eiffel Tower from Jardins du Trocadéro is unparalleled. I can’t imagine a better place to watch the sunset over the City of Light.

Paris-4
