A love declaration to the Eiffel Tower

During my stay in Paris my heart have always skipped everytime I saw the Eiffel Tower. It made me so happy, even seeing just the top of it; it`s so french, very Paris and a beautiful piece of architecture.

Diseye Tantua

One of the many wonderful people we have met in Paris Diseye Tantua will be remembered especially fondly, not only because of his enthusiasm for life but he is also an incredibly talented artist. We went to see his exhibition at Galerie Teodora and if you are in Paris you should stop by to view this up and coming artist from Nigeria and widen your artistic horizon.

Chez Janou

Tonight we ate a fantastic Provençal dinner at bistro Chez Janou. The wine was sweet, the food was a feist, the ambience was buzzling and french, a lovely way to spend our last monday night. Thank you to Hilde`s mum for treating us!

Vintage postcards

I bought a bunch of unused vintage postcards at the market on Saturday. I love the elegance of this man combined with the quirky pastel flowers that he is holding up and offering to you. It`s quite comical but I`m sure the original intension was made in the greatest seriousness.

A saturday by the Seine

On saturday we went to a vintage market and then spent most of the afternoon walking by the river and eventually sitting down on the edge of the Seine with Paris`s best ice cream watching the sun go down.

Thousands of people have declared their love to each other by attatching a padlock with their names on to the fence on the bridge at Pont des Arts.

Cherry Blossoms and sunshine

Spring has embraced Paris, trees and flowers are in bloom, on every bench and small patch of grass; people scattered, laying down as if the sudden heath have thrown them to the ground.

Centre Pompidou

Going there this evening to view the new Matisse exhibition, can`t wait!

Parc Des Buttes Chaumont

This is a park that is situated 5-10 minutes from our appartment. There is a lovely view over the city, Cacrè Coeur in the distant horizon, people laying in the grass or sitting on benches enjoying the sunshine and relaxing, above the buzzling city below.

View at dawn

View from our appartment, overlooking the backyard which is very modern except from that small clutter of french looking buildings in the corner. Wonder who put the light on.

It all seemed like a dream

Paris is grey in the daytime but incredibly clear at night. This picture turned out grey and dreamy even though I thought I pressed the trigger at excactly the right moment to get a clear picture. It made me think of how people often are not what they seem like at first glance, and how some people slip through your fingers just because you didn`t jump at the chance to make contact after that very first glance and you will never know who you missed out on and what they would have brought to your life.

Deux verres de vin blanc et un macaron gros

Hilde suprised me with a big lemon macaroon when she met up with me at our new favourite hangout Aux Folies. The white wine and macaroon was a tasty combination, especially enjoyed in the sunset.

Sacrè Coeur

Going to Sacrè Coeur on a sunday with a hungover probably isn`t the cleverest thing to do, considering we live here and could have chosen a less crowded day. But we got a seat on a bench, overlooking grey Paris and as we were seated there, the sun came out. It stayed for a mere five minutes, tops, but that and the delicious mint tea they serve in Paris cleared my head.
