My Little Adventure in Paris

4

It is not surprising that when people travel to a new place, they do not know where to focus their sights on as there are just too many things to see that it's like living in a dream! In Paris, my eyes were fully excited by all the different incredible and wonderful adventures, every discovery cute and artistic, that are really unforgettable!

Paris is a place I have longed to go to for so many years, I am fully fascinated by its artistic, romantic atmosphere, French accents, and every amazing building! However, visually, they are more interesting for a first-time visitor! Let’s appreciate Paris in a brand-new perspective!

Live Sculptures, Musee d’ Orsay Clock

It is so intriguing that people taking photos behind the clock with their shadows are like realistic sculptures, (actually are they real sculptures or real people?) with nice postures and good body lines, especially the man in the middle of the clock.

The Window Cleaner, Centre du Pompidou

He is so cute, even with people passing in and out of the corridor, he kept his concentration on the window, never letting himself be distracted. I was curious as he is extremely young and so committed.

The Triangle Trees, La Tour Eiffel Park

When I was queuing up in a long and boring line under Tour Eiffel, I was surprised that I have never realized that the leaves of all the trees in the parks are cut into triangular shapes. I wonder how they do it, climbing on high ladders? Using special cutting machines? Anyway, they are so cute for lining up in a good order and their “haircut” is so neat and tidy.

Sunset under La Tour Eiffel

Many people love the Eiffel Tower but only a few of them look at this beautiful tower in detail. In Victorian Style, with much arcs, curves, and tapered iron bridge pylons as structural as spider-webs. I could watch the colors of the sunset through a magnificent spider-web, it was the most beautiful scene that I have ever seen.

    the trees are cut in rectangular shape... so when the leaves come out, it will look like a rectangle. Normaly it prevents the trees from blocking the sun light to the windows and houses. nice article. thanks

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
