palatino; font-size: small;”>Second Day in Paris, started almost mid morning given our ‘very’ late stroll across the streets of Latin Quarters and Marais the night before. Now wiser since our near heat stroke the day before, we had checked the weather (which was fortunately cooler than the 34 the day before) and paced our day to accommodate an art lover who wanted to absorb all, a pregnant woman who couldn’t walk too much and a poor fresh graduate who had the misfortune of being stuck with the above two.

Pompidou:

  • palatino; font-size: small;”>The building itself is a piece of modern architecture worth a visit from outside even if you’re intending on being sluggish like me
  • palatino; font-size: small;”>I hope I can share some of Zub’s original images from her trip into the Museum in the coming days… once she gets back from Germany and I from London.

    Sacre Coeur, Monmartre:

After admiring the city for a good while from way up on the top, we slowly made our way down from the Hill and entered the Streets of Monmarte to have dinner… While the choice for food here is not as extensive as that in Latin Quarters and St Germaine, Monmarte Cafe’s have their own charm and you will surely find something to please your palette here.
