2019/06/18 A Handful of Days in Paris in June
π 2019-06-18 01:01 in Paris, Trips
Since we were going for my Dad's birthday during a nicer season than the usual Xmas, we got to enjoy Paris with nicer weather.

We got to enjoy the SFO Polaris Lounge and its sit down restaurant, which turns out to be fancier looking than it actually was, and had a good 45mn wait to get in. Still, we went to check it out for fun :)

Here's a quick overview of where we went:

Once in Paris, we went to check out Atelier des Lumières, which used an old warehouse to project nice stories. One was about Japan:









The longest display was Van Gogh:










Not too far was cimetary Père Lachaise, the most famous cimetary in France:

The next day, I went to the Paris Air Show at le Bourget, which was unexpected (on its own page)


Saturday, was Fête de la Musique, so we went to enjoy another pretty day in Paris:



We had been to Le Panthéon somewhat briefly some years back, but spent a longer time there this time:

The nearby zoo was better than I expected:
