London, Paris and (a bit of) Amsterdam II

 

And then I took a quick train to Paris and sketch!

Three things only for me on that Paris trip. Landmarks, flea markets and french (version of) chinese food.
On Landmarks, yep, Eiffel, Notre Dame, Sacre Coeur, Louvre. All the must-sees. I have learned later that Paris has every interesting attraction one city can offer as well. Do you know that there is one small Statue of Liberty in Paris. Yep, Not NYC but Paris. I am so going to find her if I get to go there again.

Flea market is also absolutely fastinating there. Every kind of goods. From trash to Victorian Furniture that costs you everything. I love that they sell all these second hand merchandise with art mind. All the shopped front (indoor or outdoor)were decorated beautifully. Shops are even separated by art-history era. Modern shop sells only modern furnition. Art nuveau shop for art nuveau. victorian store,yes, only victorian found. the list goes on and on.

One strange was that chinese food in Paris is amazingly good, at least to my tounge. It made my my Top 3 of chinese food.

1, Thai Chinese (Of course ;P )

2, Chinese Chinese

3, French Chinese. (thumbs up to all the chinese french)
