Paris, France - 30th May 2008

By: MrsC

Bonjour!


Tanya took me to Paris!

I met a new friend called Hope, she is also a travelling bear. She travels with Tanya to promote Breast Health Awareness. We didn't get to see too much of Paris as Tanya was working... but we did see the Eiffel Tower!

...and the Seine. (Did you know, there is no major river in Johannesburg? It was a town built on greed - for gold, not practicality)

We also visited  Jardin des Tuileries, which gets its name from the French word for tiles (tuilerie), as the area was originally a clay quarry. Catherine de Médicis had a palace built here in the late 1500's with a large Italian style garden to remind her of home. The garden was one of the first parks to be opened to the public. It is also the most central park in Paris.

Here I am outside the Louvre, maybe one day I'll go back and get to see inside it! I'd love to meet The Mona Lisa

Maybe I can convince Fi to take me to some local art galleries when I get back....
