With this post I begin chronicling highlights from my first visit to Paris, France not too long ago. It will take a while to sort through all the photos but I figure I’ll take it one day at a time.
Day 1 started with me walking around in the early afternoon, lost. While heading in the general direction of the Seine River, in a bid to reach the Louvre, I stumbled across this interesting shopping mall.
If there ever was a place on earth we could call heaven for women shopping, this would be it. No one in their right mind should let any woman into this place with a credit card. I am sure entire life savings have been squandered here, families bankrupt and ultra successful businesses spawned…LOL. This place was decadent.
I took this pan shot to hopefully capture the essence of the place. This was just the focal point of the mall, which spanned several blocks with interconnecting bridges and walkways. Needless to say, like any shopping center, women’s accessories completely dominated every floor.
I just walked around amazed at how much had gone into the overall decor and details in the architecture. It was beautiful.
