Notre Dame by the River Sena
I arrived to Paris the day before after lots of travel and inconvenient situations. I was absolutely exhausted, so I took a shower as soon as I got to my host's house. I really did not want to go out or do anything that night, so we saved the little touring for Saturday morning. He lives very close from la Cité, so we went walking down the area. It was nice to see the traditional markets and hear accordion music in the streets. We had a wonderful croissant for breakfast and walked towards the Pantheon. This magnificent building was going to be a Church dedicated to St. Genoveve, but after the revolution it was turned into a sanctuary for the main revolutionary characters.

We then walked towards the Jardin de Luxemburg, that still host the House of the Senate. We could have a little view of the top of the Eiffel tower from there. Our next stop was Notre Dame and then the Concergierie, a famous prison during the French revolution. I took some great pictures of the River Sena as well. The day was hot, so after that we called it a day, but later in the night we met with my TB Bas from Netherlands and went having some drinks by one of the bridges of the River Sena. It was a lot of fun and after a few beers and some wine it was time to go to sleep.

I like it too, but I think I liked other cities better, like Venice and Florence. I did have a great time in Paris, though!
