A cafe in Paris. Since I’ve been having some obsession with writing a novel, I’m thus obsessed with cafes as well [and] buses as great places to write. A good place for tea too :] Queen of Babylon White Tea with a mix of Rooibos Rose Garden Tea and a touch of German Rock Cane Sugar
okay…this takes quite a while to do. Will finish tomorrow
Last picture of Versailles. Absolute power doesn’t corrupt, it reveals. In that way, it’s interesting how many rulers try to create a world of their own with their palaces. Our world is different from the rest. Is that what so many people want?
The other thing that Versailles will never be lacking in: statues. Every wonder why people makes statues? To keep a image of themselves or someone else for [hopefully] eternity? It means from this moment forth, I am unconditionally and eternally yours. Death will never part us. I’ll love you until the last breath of forever; I’ll love you until Paris fades…
Versailles and it’s many fountains. I remember when Nok made us write a paper on them. Too bad there are no ducks to kick or step on.
Panorama of the front of Versailles. I wonder why humans build such large things; we’re the only creature that has changed this planet so. Heh, I’m pretty sure I’ll end up living by a city when I settle down. Living in Chicago has formed an attachment :]. I’ll give you the stars and the moon…And maybe even a city to go along with it.
I don’t even know why I took or picked this photo. It’s a testament to the amount of time I’ve procrastinated on tumblr-ing. But not matter what, it draws me back eventually. Cause that’s the thing about boomerangs, right?
Near the end of the we were there, people started clearing out. Imagine being a king and walking down it alone.
I really wish I got to see Paris at night. Definitely need to come back sometime by myself. Let’s disappear…into a world filled with timeless magic and the city of love.
The famous Hall of Mirrors. I’m sure you can find way better photos on the internet because it was impossible for me to take them without all the tourists.
John Green gives interesting metaphors of how to see people in Paper Towns. And the illusions we have of them. My Illusionist, will you take me into a world filled with timeless magic?
France Day 2 | 19 photos
Advance warning: the captions for the pictures are not going to be interesting because there isn’t many interesting things to say about Versailles and the Musée du Louvre. It’s not that they’re not interesting but rather that I don’t have much to say about them.
So, instead, I’ll talk about finding Paris. Because it’s worth it, right? :P
@endlessstories: if only I knew….
End of Day 1. Again posting day 2 might take a while but now I have the motivation to do it.
Escargot…and foie gras (not shown). Something everyone has to try in Paris.
Cozy restaurant on a skew intersection…great way to end a day. Wood really looks striking in a city of stone walls.
Midnight in Paris…in Paris. Har har
I really need/want to watch that movie.
And the X-Men and Kung Fu Panda of course
The other thing that really fascinates me are skew intersections. They let you see down two streets at once which amuses me to no end. Maybe I’m just too used to Chicago’s grid system. On the other hand, it is so so so much easier to navigate a grid.
