Paris – Day 05

Todays program lead me to La Défense.

The district is at the westernmost extremity of Paris’ 10-km long Historical Axis, which starts at the Louvre in Central Paris and continues along the Champs-Élysées, well beyond the Arc de Triomphe before culminating at La Défense. Around its 100-metre high Grande Arche -goddamned that thing is huge, and it’s extremely windy up there- the district holds many of the Paris urban area’s tallest high-rises.

The adjacent shopping center is mind boggeling, the subway station below gigantic, and the whole arrangement made you feel like in the middle of a sci_fi movie….

God I love this City, and although i consider english to be my second native language, i just don’t have enough words to describe it.
