Pictures of Paris France

A few years ago, I made my first trot through Paris and fell in love.

Paris is a city that is so dear to me. The language, the culture, the food, and the social scene capture me each time. Each visit, I learn a bit more, meet a new friend, join a new tribe, and find so many reasons to return. I could certainly live there for a few years. Since my first introduction, I return every few months for a bit more of the Parisian Pie.

During this breeze through the city, I felt compelled to engage in the neighborhoods off the tourist beat. I ventured in the area of Porte de la Vilette.  This neighborhood is in the northeastern section of Paris off the pink subway line. It’s a straight shot into the city if need be.

I loved seeing a variety of locals out and about. There were lovers everywhere. I love the energy of romance throughout Paris. The men are so affectionate and aware of bonding. They aren’t afraid of public affection, holding hands, kisses, hugs, and the sincere embraces.

Oh Paris, ooo Paris

But I couldn’t resist going into the city for dinner….

The busy Sacre Coeur. Sacre Coeur is a bustling area on and around the step of its grounds. Sacre Coeur is a Roman Catholic Church and minor basilica dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is touted as one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in Paris. Many gather outside of it’s doors for friendly fellowship, tourism, and people watching.

One person to note while people watching in the middle steps area of Sacre Coeur is Iya Traore. Iya Traore is an iconic figure in Paris. His fancy footwork and amazing soccer tricks keep crowds amazed for the long haul. There are tons of Youtube videos that show how talented he is.

The rest of my time was just mindless wandering through the city, resting my mind, and planning for my next adventure in London.

Dancing with the night owls…

Good night for now Paris.

We will make acquaintances again in a few months, perhaps in late fall.
