PARIS: the bits in between museum visits

From the moment year 2 at KCL began, London has been a ceaseless stream of events; it's exhausting yet exhilarating, surreal and terrifying all at the same time. Time sped up when I moved from the peaceful, self-satisfied ease of Hampstead to the hustle and bustle that permeates King's Cross in a sleepless cycle of night and day. 

Amidst it all, I haven't had the chance to pause and devote energy into cafecreatur-ing. Taking my heavy canon 500D out is a serious commitment whenever I leave the comfortable vicinity of King's Cross and I'm just not quite satisfied with the photos I take with my much smaller digital camera. I did, however, manage to dig up some photos from Paris that I'd long forgotten to post. As much as I love London, I do miss the french-infused charm that pervades every architecturally elegant street of Paris.

In between Ralph Lauren's car collection at Musée des Arts Décoratifs (car fanatics, click here) and Musée d'Orsay, I found these two playing Catch in the gardens: 

What better time than summer for our inner child to come out and play?

We found lebanese food at the Louvre!

I had a chance to combine my two loves in life recently and had a two weeks' holiday in wonderful France, to which I had been before, and had loved so much. I took a little Renault rental car and headed off from Paris, to the Palace of Versailles, to Chartres then southward to sunny Provence, via the Auvergne region, with the Songs of the Auvergne playing repeated on the CD player.
Magnifique, comme toujours. I saw many art galleries and followed the footsteps of artists, like poor Vincent Van Gogh.
Back home all too soon, I ordered a canvas print from wahooart.com, choosing this painting by Cézanne, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8EWNWL, to remember my trip by.
