We live in a materialistic world that pays insufficient attention to human values. We seek satisfaction in material things instead of warm-heartedness. But human beings are social animals. We need friendship and that depends on trust. Building trust requires concern for others and defending their rights, not doing them harm. Friendship is directly linked to warm-heartedness, which is also good for our physical health.

Paris has many hidden treasures.

One of them is La Pagode located in the 7th arondissement. It was on my original list of places to visit back in April but I never made it there.

Today’s rainy weather was perfect for a long walk from my hotel in Montmartre all the way down to Rue de Bablyone (quite a hike!).

Built in 1896, it started out as a ballroom but was transformed into a theater in 1930. It is still in use today as a theater.

I literally dropped my bag when I entered the garden because I was overwhelmed by the emotional pull of the scene laid out before me. I stood there for a while watching the painter paint under the canopy of trees before taking photographs and sitting down for a while to savor the beauty.

What a perfect end to a whirlwind of a trip. I leave Paris early tomorrow morning with so many amazing memories.

Paris has a permanent spot in my heart.

Paris - Le Royal Monceau Hotel

Here is a little teaser from Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris where I had the pleasure of staying as a guest of the hotel itself when I was in Paris recently. The interiors are intricately and whimsically designed by Philippe Starck and I fell in love with them during my stay.

Here I am running down one of the hallways feeling like Alice in Wonderland.

I will be posting a huge photo-set from my time spent there later this week.

(Edited to add: The photo-set is up now here:

 But, I couldn’t resist posting this timed action self-portrait that I took with my Sony A7R. I set up my tripod in the hallway and used my phone to trigger the timer countdown on my camera. And then I ran and hoped for the best much to the amusement of some of the staff .

Royal Monceau Raffles Paris Hotel - Design by Philippe Starck

There is a HUGE write-up about this hotel with TONS (and I mean TONS) of photos here:

http://travelinglens.me/post/96672433314/royal-monceau-raffles-paris-a-photo-tour-a

The  is a 5 Star Palace hotel located in the heart of Paris within walking distance to the Park Monceau and the Arc de Triomphe. It opened in the late 1920s and has hosted a wide array of people including Josephine Baker, Winston Churchill, Ernest Hemingway, and Michael Jackson. 

It was recently refurbished by the iconic French designer Philippe Starck. And indeed, staying in the hotel and exploring it fully takes you on a whimsical journey into the imagination of Starck.

By the time I stayed at the Royal Monceau, I had been traveling in France for nearly three weeks at the tail-end of an adventure that took me through the south of France and up to Paris. I was a bit saucer-eyed and woozy from travel and travel photography. However, Royal Monceau made it impossible for me not to completely unwind and have my own smile-worthy adventure within its walls as I discovered the whimsical genius of Starck and grew to appreciate the Royal Monceau's high standards of excellence.

Paris: Summer in the City of Love

Paris blossoms

in the summer.

----

These accompany a post with TONS of Paris photos (and I mean TONS) here:

http://travelinglens.me/post/97700686784/paris-summer-in-the-city-of-love-paris-is




Trees,

heavy with leaves,

shimmer in rare bouts

of sunlight

that pours

over the city streets

like white gold.

And even

the rain

shimmers against

history-bleached architecture,

as the days linger long,

-like trailing words spilling slowly

off the phrases of lovers.

Paris - Eiffel Tower

I have been going through my photos from Paris. It's interesting how time colors memory, no?

I took this self-portrait with my Sony A7 from the balcony of my room at Shangri-La Paris Hotel. This was, hands down, one of the best views of the Eiffel Tower I have ever had the pleasure of savoring. It almost seemed completely unreal. 

Cannot wait to do a huge photo-set and post about my experience there. It will be a rather epic post, that's for sure! Will probably post about it early next week.
