Paris, I Miss You #3

Day six and the third installment of the Paris visit.

The sun was shining, and the day was bright, and we were on a mission.

We were on our way to the Lourve.

The little that we could see from outside made us excited.

But alas, it was a Tuesday, and as per normal traditions, all museums were closed on Tuesdays.

Till tomorrow, Lourve.

We moved forward and onwards. There was still a lot to see in Paris

Walking along the Seine river.. get to the bridge that would take us to the left bank.

Don't take my words for it, but I think the left bank was rightfully named so, due to the fact that it is situated on the left side of the Seine river bank.

Our first stop as soon we got to the left bank was for lunch. We got into the most packed cafe we could find.

Apparently the theory was, the more packed with people the place is, the higher the chances are of getting good food.

I was craving for real proper lunch. I'll just have to make do for this time.

Jardin du Luxemborg.

Despite the sunny weather, the frozen fountain was living proof of how it was freezing cold that day.

My best bet it was either an Indonesian or a Malaysian shop. I never went in to find out.

There was something about the Notre Dame that made you wanted to stare at it with awe.

Back at the center to be on time for the opera that night.

The Opera Palais du Garnier.

The opera was called Le Cerisaie which was all sung in Russian but with French subtitles. Either one did not help. I was sleeping for the most part. *guilty*

Day seven.

Browsing though books at one of the bookstores in Montmarte.

Abesses metro station will be most infamous for the most headache inducing spiral stairway I've ever gone on.

We finally got into the Lourve. More pictures from the Lourve in the 4th and final installment.
