Paris is commonly known as the City of Light. May I say that I don’t agree with the whole of it; Paris can be the City of Light in some sort of way, but most of it, as I have seen, is a quite regular town. City of Light could as well be City of Ember, if you’re on the subway.
Then again, there’s a whole lot world of flashing lights if you’re at the Champs-Elysées or Tour Eiffel (for those who missed it, Elysian Fields and Eiffel Tower). For now, I’ll just leave here a couple of photos or so, in order to give you a bit of what’s around to visit.

I have been to Paris this last week for a few days on holidays, to visit the town for the first time.
It was a quick travel, only 5 days (actually, when you travel for 5 days, less than 4 are actually left to spend on visiting places around, no need to explain this), but I got to visit nice places. I was thrilled to see snow for the first time. 🙂
Maybe some photos will show up here, but no promises.
Have you ever been to Paris? Any thoughts on that?
See you soon,
Hello, readers and followers. 🙂
I wish you all a Happy New Year, with all the blah-blah-blah-good-stuff.
Here is the last picture of 2009, taken with a cellphone! It’s a carrot cake, treat. I like this ones so much because they got this heart-shape.
The words, they say: “One day, I will give you mine. <3"
