Inspirations from the Top of a Paris Bus

July 28, 2010 § 2 Comments

Cruising down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and under the Arc de Triomphe in a double-decker bus is quite a thrill. Especially the day before Bastille Day in Paris. Tons of people everywhere (and I was glad someone else was doing the driving). Taking a bus tour was a great way to see the city especially on a short timeframe. From the grassy-roofed sports stadium to views down the River Seine, the bus gave us average American tourists a snapshot of Paris highlights without the lines.

    L’Hotel de Ville is one of Rafael’s favorite buildings in Paris. Not sure why – it has statutes of the past mayors of Paris all over its facade. Also a rather nice park & fountains in front. Where we stayed was htree blocks from there – rue Victoria, near Chatelet.

    I thought the larger than supernatural-sized photo of Charles de Gaulle out front was a bit much — even though I’m sure it was just up for Bastille Day celebrations.
