When traveling, I randomly (and my family would say – excessively) shoot picture after picture after picture. My mantra excuse is always I never know quite what I will want to share about a city or place – what will stand out, make me laugh, make me want to return.
Likewise, I never know what Teen and Pre-teen are going to glean from our experiences. In my last post A Paris Perspective: The Monuments, I shared Part One of my photo perspective and Teen’s short but to the point assessment of Paris. Pre-teen, however, in a moment of rarity, was more loquacious on his impressions.
Pre-Teen’s 4 Parisian Summations:
1. Napoleon, as basically the only French war hero, pretty much has it made in the eternal “hero-worship” department.
2. The most memorable experience in Paris is climbing to the top of the Eiffel Tower where the telescope glasses allow you to stalk tourists in the plaza below.
3. Escargot tastes like, well, eating a snail.
Last, and unarguably the most important…
4. When in Paris, Nutella filled crepes should be consumed at every possible opportunity, morning, noon and night.
As for mine, again, Paris can speak for itself.
Part 2: The City
And yes, there is a Part Trois – Rivers and Bridges – coming next!
