europe: paris, france ii

Paris - Montpellier - Marrakech/Sahara - Barcelona - Amsterdam/Rotterdam

It was my second time in the city of love, Paris. It was fall which made it even more romantic. The skies were wispy and faded, and when sunset came, pastels of pink, blue, and purple colored against the warm yellow light.

We were out and about the city where our tour guide showed us the famous attractions. It was my first time to hear stories from a guide and I was fascinated with all of it. All the allure and the splendor of Paris, and even how Parisians carry themselves made more sense after.

I stayed in the city after the work week with clients and spent a weekend with Dani. We ate at the famous Angelina and I finally tried the much-loved hot chocolate. I fell in love with Fragonard and the perfume Etoile and promised to go to the perfume museum next time.

Paris, at a second glance, did not seem too intimidating to me anymore. I felt confident roaming in the big city and unafraid of all the entangled train lines underneath. And maybe, just maybe, it will show me secrets when we meet again.
