Paris Colours *Blue*

End of June… beginning of Summer
Three days in Paris, all with different colours
Blue

Parisian promotion of a magnificent past; even in not-so-charming quartiers like the Montparnasse, there is a barrage of name-dropping:

The inscriptions reads, “General Koenig, know that you are the pride of France”. In a park in Porte Maillot, across the Palais de Congres.DSC_2192A car maker with a french touch.

    • I never got to fly in a concord either. Took them for granted, thought I had all the time in the world, one day I woke up and concords were grounded! One of my little regrets, but I got my lesson:-)

  1. Tea & tattered pages … Thank you for the little trip! It just goes to show that it is the will of people to keep such friendly and humane places open and running. And so agree with the comment about the skyscraper. We give away our view of a friendly sky for a quick glimpse of an overview of the city…

    • I do hope they’ll find a way to keep it and open up again! As you say, it is such little gems that make cities humane… as opposed to the skyscrapers… Although Paris has a more ”breathable” open skyline than other cities of its size…
