I forgot this even happened in France.
Hi Friends and Neighbors.
My tour in France went by so quickly and I was working so much the whole time that I forgot whole things that happened.
II did see L’arc de Triomphe. I had about 5 minutes to walk this close to it, take a few pictures and then get a coffee and some lunch before my work call.
So, I saw that.
I also saw this, because our hotel was close to it (and so my running route was, too)
This is a contemporary art museum in Paris, called Centre Pompidou. Apparently, it was designed with all the pipes, elevators, fans and stuff that usually takes up space inside a building, on the outside, so as to make more room for the art on the inside. Also, as seems to be the case with most new things in Paris, a lot of people hated the idea of this building because it was so different from everything around it.
Just like this:
RIIIIIGHHT, I also saw the Louvre. From the outside. At night. Apparently, a lot of Parisians hated this pyramid, too.
Me, I liked it. I mean, I’d like to see the inside of an extremely large and famous museum every now and then, but if I can only get the outside, I’ll settle for the outside.
