BPE - Paris II

Aug 19...
Our second day in Paris was about visiting the famous places... walking (once again a lot) and taking the funny pictures! enjoy...Notredame... its completely amazing... how could they build something so great, without using all the technology we have now a days (with which we dont usually do such great things)? All the arcs, stones, bricks in the ceiling, the walls, the windows... guess there is really no way to describe it. It must have been so dark at that time... with no electricity and only the light coming in from the stained glasses...




After going to Notredame and walking around the river, with the sand, and the volleyballs field trying to make it look like a summer beach, we went to the Latin Quarter, where we had a really nice lunch at Maoz... and then with "barriga llena, corazon contento" we continued our way through the Luxembourg Gardens, the observatory, many streets, and then heading towards the Eiffel tower.





Peace 平和 Paz


And here they are... the funny pictures! First: capoeristic picture! (sorry I didnt find a famous monument in Ireland... :s) Below... ok, this took us so much time!!! and so much energy!!! we had to try almost 10 times before the two of us were actually in the air! but it was worth it! and we gave some good reason to laugh to a couple who were sitting and looking at us with a big smile in their faces... :p



And then after going across the Champ de Mars, to the Palais de Challot, we found another demonstration against Israel invasion of Lebanon. This time most of them were Lebanese, and they were dancing and having a good time I think. The one thing that I found really strange was... the Venezuelan flag in the wall! and a woman carrying a picture of Chavez! really... now I wonder if that flag had 7 or 8 stars... oh yeah... he actually changed the flag! probably including Cuba... (anyway thats a different topic...) and elections are coming... (not that i expect things will actually change, but there is always hope)
oh, and the other strange thing was... the yellow flags... there is actually a gun in the flag... so, like my sister said... how can they be hoping for peace, with a gun in their flag? I usually tend to blame Bush about all the wars, but yeah, things like this make you actually wonder...
