My favorite city in the world

Paris. Whenever I watch movies or tv shows with scenes of this city I always catch myself smiling. I love everything from the language, the food, the beauty of the city, the darkness of its history, the smells, the crazy politics, the art, and the Parisians. I was an international studies major and french minor in college so I decided to study abroad in Paris for a semester. I lived with a french family with three young kids who knew way more about the world than I did at that time. I would do anything to be able to go back and relive those six months and truly appreciate everything the city has to offer. I remember being so annoyed at my daily commute that took upwards of an hour from the suburbs where I lived to my school near the jardin du luxembourg. I was in PARIS. What could I have possibly complained about? Oh, youth is wasted on the young :)

I always forget how huge the city is

Galeries Lafayette
I even love gloomy Paris 
my favorite piece in the Louvre, called "psyche revived by cupid's kiss"
my second favorite piece at the Louvre called the winged victory of Samothrace
