Courtesan in Paris

And then sometimes life is good.

But then you don't have anything to complain about in your LJ.

Had a lovely - albeit cold - afternoon yesterday, walking around in historical Paris and taking pictures (that I'll show later since I'm not using a digital camera and need to finish the film and get them developped first...).
I love this town. It makes me feel joyful just to walk around in it and find its hidden treasures.

I know it's sales over here, but I never thought you could get one for so cheap.

A courtesan for 4.50 Euros...

Actually it's the name of a tea.

I sat down in a salon de thé in the Palais Royal because it was cold and I had time to waste before going to get my previous set of pictures back from the photo office. I intended to have a hot chocolate, but I saw they served this tead "Courtisane" and it looked yummy (citrus fruits and red ones), and it was funny.

I didn't think the bill would come out this way, though, and it's even better.

I haven't seen all of them, but so far it ranks as :
1) Paris
2) San Francisco
3) London

well, at least for all the cities i have been to. and i can tell you that paris struck me like no other city had. and i remembered thinking, when i boarded the plane back to singapore from paris, will i ever find another city that is worth measuring against paris?

you are one lucky lady!

About this, yes, I know :)

BTW, about your post about the Changeling, I think that painting of Endymion is at the Louvre, I pretty sure I saw it there.

it is? wow. i thought it was somewhere in london. i guess my next trip back to paris, i have to go look for that picture. the thing about the lourve is that sometimes there are just too many pictures, you get lost amongst them...

You make me jealous. All I have to offer is a smoggy city and rude people.

Oh, people are usually pretty rude here too. Especially in shops, which I find very unprofessional.
But *shrug* sometimes it's okay. And the town loves to be loved. It just feels alive sometimes.
