A May 2004 trip
to Paris by Smitha Guru
Quote: Our first trip to Europe included four magical nights in Paris. To call the city romantic is a cliche, but that is exactly what it is, a romantic city I fell in love with and just did not have enough days to explore.

When I started seeing the paintings on display, I could not help giggling. They were so beyond my understanding. Guru was baffled too, but being the one who dragged me to see them, he pretended to look through some before moving on to the Picasso exhibits. The only thing that was familiar to us was the name. We could not make out the head or tail of the collections, and all the while my giggling was growing. Finally Guru gave it up and suggested that we head for some other attraction.
Luckily, the entrance fee was covered in our museum pass, so we did not pay extra to get in. The area around the centre is the best place in Paris to get souvenirs like t-shirts and postcards, at the best possible rates. I would recommend this only if you are an admirer of modern art; else it is just an eyesore and a waste of time.
