Paris in March


Here are some pictures of my stay in Paris last week. I had the chance to visit the Louvre, where I spent one entire day, Musée d’Orsay and other little less known museums like Musée de la Chasse during Dr Sketchy, Maxim’s Art Nouveau Museum, Catacombes and Petit Palais. I also had the chance to take pictures of Gavilane boutique in Marais and my friend Louise Ebel‘s home. So other posts are still to come.

Going to Paris is like living a parallel life for me. I have to thank my parisian friends for this and, most of all, my friend Danilo to whom this post is dedicated.

To see more of my parisian trips go here.
