Do we ever stop of seeing Paris? well never, its a movable feast, eternal city of lights. Every opportunity is a welcome mat to civilisation, fun, history, architecture and specially the arts and culture we so much drank from it on each trip.
I was again by Paris yesterday, like so many posts before, (you can go to research and find them all here in my blog), the city never ceased to amazed me. More so because of a good friend from Algeria was coming over with his family and at least I had the opportunity to say hello , that is Paris the sublime meeting point of the world, or as Bogart used to say in Casablance, We will always have Paris.
We had our drinks at La Terrasse resto on the place de l’école militaire, all there in the square is good and sublime. http://www.laterrassedu7.com/
Of course, I came by TGV train from Auray to Montparnasse direct, as much as don’t like trains many times I have no choice, I took the metro line 6 because it goes above ground on the way in ok. However, on the way back, I took the wonderful bus 92 from place de l’école militaire to gare de Montparnasse , much better ride and wonderful Paris scènes ,above ground. I still amazed at the number of visitors that insist on taking these trains, its like a tourist attraction lol!!! Then on the TGV from Montparnasse back home and because of railroad tracks works after Rennes are Under repairs, I have the distinct pleasure of taking the SNCF buses or cars. from the Gare de Rennes to Auray in 2 hours! nice ride as it was very late but boy going out of a train station to go to a bus station this late at night almost midnight was not my cup of tea even in the smallist station like Rennes. I arrive well at my car for the last 15 minutes trip home. The Paris buses, métros, tramways etc are in the ever popular http://www.ratp.fr, and the gare de Rennes is here http://www.gares-en-mouvement.com/en/frrns/accueil/
While in Paris, I had sublime 10 floor views of the city towards the Eiffel tower,and the Invalides Church. I walk around the Eiffel, and went around the école Militaire. Walking past Place Joffre you see of course still the Eiffel tower but also,a unique monument to Peace;http://www.murpourlapaix.org/site/mur.html
Walking Paris is always good, and I did around these areas, looking at old parking places I have used and restos such as the 7vin and cassenoix that I have been,all br ing memories of Paris, always good for the soul. Enjoy your week everyone/ Cheers.
