The love I have for Paris, in photos

united_kingdomNot everyone understands the love I have for Paris. But for me, France’s capital holds a special place in the heart. Paris is for me:

  • the city from the novel “The Lady of the Camellias” (French: La Dame aux camélias) by A. Dumas
  • Montmartre neighborhood  from my favorite movie “Amelie”
  • the streets of Paris from 2 of my favorite movies of all times “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset”
  • the Seine river and its artists depicted in my childhood cartoons “Sandy Belle” (the seed for my love for Paris started growing because of this cartoon)

I’ve been to Paris 4 times so far, but I would go again, and again, and again…to admire the large boulevards, the white buildings, the Seine, the artists in Montmartre, the parcs, the people…

romania_flagMulti nu imi inteleg dragostea ce o port pentru Paris, dar pentru mine Parisul e:

  • orasul din romanul “Dama cu Camelii” al lui A. Dumas
  • cartierul Montmartre din “Amélie”, fimul meu preferat
  • farmecul strazilor Parisului din “Before Sunrise” si “Before Sunset”, alte filme de suflet
  • raul Sena si pictorii de-a lungul Senei din “Sandi Belle” (desenele copilariei mele, de la care probabil a pornit samanta de iubire ce o port pentru Paris).

Parisul e orasul pe care l-am vizitat de 4 ori pana acum si unde m-as duce din nou, si din nou, si din nou… sa admir bulevardele largi, cladirile albe, anticarii de-a lungul Senei, artistii din cartierul Montmartre, parcurile, oamenii…

    1. For me is deffinetly “no” to lovelocks. People should prove their love in a different manner than to hang locks on bridges. The side of the bridge in Paris fell under the weight of these things…
