Everyone loves Paris Art Fashion Food Wine

Paris Art Fashion Food Wine, even though generally the French are rather arrogant & rude to tourists. I’m guessing they love their city & resent the intrusion of so many foreigners.

It was 10 years ago in 2005 when I was there so I’m due to visit again soon. Last year I was in Amsterdam, Brussels and London, and in 2013 I got as close as BrugeVersailles  which of course is adjacent to the beautiful city.

Ella says it better than I can.

Notre Dame Hotel Paris.

Grand Cluny

Everywhere you look in Paris there is a brasserie.


Champs-ÉlyséesThe Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a street in Paris. With its cinemas, cafés, luxury specialty shops and clipped horse-chestnut trees, the Champs-Élysées is arguably one of the world’s most famous boulevards.

Dinner with friends in Paris

Paris Art Fashion Food WineAnother great dinner with friends in Paris washed down with a nice Bordeaux. I’m with Gavin & Cheryl Kernot from Australia & Malvina who now lives in Paris. I first met Malvina a few years ago when she lived in Mexico city.

Paris Kebab.

Wonderful seafood street stall

The Buddha Bar is a very cool trendy spot with good music, make sure you have plenty of money. You will find it at 8 Rue Boissy d’ Anglais M. Concorde.

Here is some Buddha bar music.

Buddha Bar Paris

No prizes for guessing what dominates the floor space inside this ultra-cool Parisian imbibery. You might think it’s the Buddha that attracts the oh-so-trendy set here, as it’s always flattering to stand next to someone more rotund than yourself. A very popular haunt with drinkers and diners alike.

I think an open top boat is more fun.

I wonder if there are bats in the belfry?

The ancient buildings are amazing.

This structure looks familiar.

Eiffel Tower Paris

Located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. It was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. Erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World’s Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; 7.1 million people ascended it in 2011. The tower received its 250 millionth visitor in 2010. The tower stands 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to assume the title of the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years, until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930. Because of the addition of the antenna atop the Eiffel Tower in 1957, it is now taller than the Chrysler Building by 5.2 metres (17 ft). Not including broadcast antennas, it is the second-tallest structure in France, after the Millau Viaduct.

Nymphs of the Seine

Paris Art Fashion Food WineThe Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge that spans the Seine, connecting the Champs-Élysées quarter and the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter, widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in Paris. It is classified as a historical monument.

Wonderful Paris statue.

Every time I hear Edith Piaf sing I immediately think of Paris.
