Walking Paris

Posted on Posted in Architecture, Art, Blog, Design

I think I have mentioned before that I love Paris!

I have visited the city many times and dropped by the usual tourist destinations like the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay. Once inside after waiting online, reality sets in... it would take days to see all that is offered.

On our latest trip an effort was made to not let those precious few hours slip away..... waiting. We decided to walk, talk, eat, relax, walk some more, talk and eat again.  We roamed the Paris streets, but this time included planned, liesurely  stops for lunch and dinner at well researched dining spots.

We had a great time and our good decision to view Paris from a different perspective was reinforced as we passed by the long lines at the usual tourist attractions.

The image above is on the grounds of the Musée du quay Branly, recommended as a must see by a friend. It is known in English as the Quai Branly Museum, nicknamed MQB. The building was designed by Jean Nouvel with extensive gardens and green walls designed by Gilles Clément and Patrick Blanc. The museum features indigenous art, cultures and civilizations from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas. We will make an attempt to see the interior exhibits on our next trip to Paris!
