Anyway, here are pictures from the last 2 days:
|Day 24: Palais des Congrès, which has nothing to do with Congress.|
First there is the Palais des Congrès, which, surprisingly to me, has nothing to do with Congress but is in fact a concert venue and convention center. It is also massive and that combined with the small park across the street with trees on all sides prevented me from getting a shot of the whole thing. It's pretty ugly anyway. It does sit pretty well between the Arc de Triomphe and La Defense, serving as a "modern meets classic" segue for leaving Paris and entering the ultra-modern business district of La Defense to the west. I am, however, removing it from my Axe Historique lineup because it is neither historic or significant as a monument and was rather disappointing. That'll show them...
|Day 25: TV/"Arch" of La Defense, last on my Axe Historique project.|
Oh, and I might have lost the family's apartment key, although I really think I left it at their apartment so if it disappeared from there it's their own fault (I tell myself). Keys here are really strange and seem like they'd be expensive to replace...oh dear.
On the bright side, if one can be found in this dismal weather, happy birthday Mom!
