Paris – The burlesque, the cool and the church

– JULY 26, 2015

Our apartment was located within 8 blocks of the infamous Moulin Rouge.

The Institute du Monde Arabe is a public library with spaces for special exhibits.  The exterior curtain wall assembly has metal motorized components that look like a combination of snowflakes and the inner workings of a clock.

We happened to walk by the Eglise de la Madeleine…not planned, but we took it all in anyhow.

Next up we went by to see the Art Ledique Le Musee.  The green building has some interesting things happening (it looks like it could be the headquarters of the Ninja Turtles), but the rooftop views and graphitti underneath are the true gems here.

A short walk then took us to the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris.  This is one of the most important historical monuments in Paris.
