Another Parisian classics – Louvre, Sacré-Cœur, Tour l’Eiffel and Arts et Metiers Museum

Most of Parisian or simply French people will puke when you’ll tell them you want them to take you to see Tour l’Eiffel or Louvre. I think I can get them. I’ve spent alltogether almost one month of my life in Paris and I know there are better places to see. Anyway, after 5 days which I’ve spent with Nina and Seba this time, my other friends came to visit Paris as well. I decided to give guys some rest, as I can be pretty tiresome, especially when hungover – for the last 3 days in Paris I stick with Ola, Kamila and some friends of theirs. It has been first time in Paris for some of them, that is why we’ve been walking through tourist districts mostly.

Before they arrived, I’ve made a lonely excursion to Arts et Metiers Museum. It’s free of charge for EU-citizens under 26. It is sort of scientific museum, they have special sections devoted to mechanics, geography, even recycling and so on. It took me more than 2 hours to see everything, but I could have spent there entire day. If you are interested in science in general, this is the right place to be. There are some tasks prepared to show and realize people how things work, lots of films, those all interactive things – you can touch and try to make some of them work, though mostly it is forbidden to take pictures or touch things. Remember – NE TOUCHER PAS ; )

It was probably Saturday morning after party, when we all decided to meet about noon to go to the Louvre.  I would not mention that if not the fact of losing our friend Kamila there. It is obvious that when you are in a group of 5 people, each interested in seeing other stuff someone is going to end up lost. We could not trace Kamila, so me and Ola went to drink some coffee to kill the time  as we knew she will need to spend there at least 3 or 4 hours. She did not answer our phone calls nor text messages so I came up with a brilliant idea – why not to tell security we’ve lost our younger sister so we could call her out through loudspeakers or something like that. Well, what they needed was an exact description of Kamila, her name, surname, phonenumber, description of clothes she had on – we gave them all of these, but we’ve told she’s only 12 years old. LUCKILY, Kamila called us during conversation with security, before the order for search for her was given – we did not have to lie anymore,  we just told them she’s already waiting for us and ran away as fast as possible 😉

Short excursion to Sacre-Coeur and Montmartre – I have no idea how we did that, but when we went inside, there has been High Mass held because of canonisation of Jan Paweł II (Polish pope, haha).

I'm almost 25 years old, polish, vegetarian, crazy about languages and travelling, addicted to hardcore punk and electronic music. Lately interested in photography as well (analog and modern). Have no big experience in both - writing nor photoshooting, though once had a blog concerning vegan/vegetarian food recipes - just another hobby. Hope you're enjoying my pretty weird style of writing :). Excuse me all of mistakes made in english. You can also check some of my photos here: http://www.tumblr.com/blog/travel-o-graphy .
