Day 3~Paris! (P.S. there’s food-related things)

Hello there,

The weather had brightened up slightly compared to before and we visited the following places: The Louvre, Le Cordon Bleu and the Père-Lachaise Cemetery.

Once again, we walked though the Jardin de Tuileries.

This couple really stood out.

The famous Glass Pyramid.

I loved the detail of the wet fabric clinging on to the angel in this statue of the Victory of Samothrace.

I was surprised to see painters there.

Unfortunately, this painter couldn’t capture the amazing way the painter created an almost life-like texture of velvet in the painting. This was by far one of my favourite paintings and I really had to resist the urge to touch the painting to see if there was really velvet.

The Mona Lisa has more paparazzi than any celebrity on this planet.

Looking very content amongst my tired classmates who leant against the wall, exhausted from wondering around the building.

Trying my first ever PSL-pumpkin spice latte from starbucks.

Had a simple mixed courgette quiche in the food court.

The upside-down pyramid was amazing in terms of splitting the light and creating a spectrum of colours on the ground.

Le Cordon Bleu! I’m sure you’ve heard of this famous cooking school also known as the Blue Ribbon! It’s one of the most prestigious cooking schools in Paris and it was an absolute honour to be able to be given a tour of the school! I wish I could do summer courses here in the future!

I also managed to buy two jars of jam from here-one was black cherry flavoured and the other was 3 fruits rouges (3 red fruits). The special thing about the jam here is that there is no extra added sugar-it just uses the natural sugars in the fruit.

I wish I could’ve brought these home but I still had a few days left in Paris so I didn’t want them to melt.

Oscar Wilde had a lot of female admirers as we could see.
