We went there on a chilly summer. While trotting around the city, I saw a flourishing golden blaze of stone as the sun went down and hit the beautiful buildings with its last rays.

For me, I considered Paris as an enslaving elegant sophisticated city hidden behind spectacular anterior. It is beautiful and alive 24 hours a day.

As we got off the plane, a steward put a corsage and a native hat on me. With this, I felt very warm welcomed and happy.

Shortly, after we arrived at our hotel, my feet started to get itchy. So, we walked in some parts in Paris on a chilly night to see a bit of a place. There, I saw the sun shining brightly at thirty past nine in the evening.

    • Thank you for your comment and glad that you liked this post. 🙂
      However, I really meant it to have interjections in between in some of my posts in order to make it fun. I write the serious stuff while my husband writes the comments (only when he has time, he is really most definitely not interested in having a blog). Our friends like it though, but didn’t know that it gives a confusing tone to others.
