Short Break at Paris

Tuesday, July 18, 2006

I take some time off last week, been to Prague then Paris. Friends was asking how was the Paris trip, so I post my Paris photos first. Spent 3 days 2 nights in Paris.

I must say, Paris is too commercialize, not really my type of place, it's a city after all. Language is another problem for me. Most French don't speak English, not very tourist friendly... Even the Resturant's menu in French.. too bad, I didn't try any serious French cuisine due to that.

I don't like to travel in summer, the weather was too hot.

When travel to western european country, there isn't many thing that I can do. Just visit to museum, church and monument.

Arc De Triomphe l'Etoile

Fountain at Place de la Concorde

I think this is the most beautiful of Paris, Musée du Louvre

My last day in Paris, the weather was hot, lazy to go out.
Spend a day in Louvre Museum, met Mona Lisa (by Leonardo da Vinci), Venus de Milo (probably by Alexandros of Antioch) and many more

Food is what I've missed off, due to language problem. This is one of my meal.
Duck pâté as starter

Main course is half chicken in french tarragon sauce

Dessert is Chocolate Mousse
