Second day in Paris and we were already missing the London Underground which is much cleaner and simpler than France’s Metro. But it doesn’t mean that we wanted to go back just yet. There was still a lot to be covered.
Before we entered Dali’s exhibit, we looked at some modern art. Although I appreciate the history of vintage artworks, I find myself enjoying more contemporary pieces. I am also a fan of modern typography.
Finally, we entered Dali’s floor. One way to describe Dali’s works is to say that it’s “weird but interesting”. There are so many details in his pieces. His crazy imagination and beliefs made him create surreal art that incites and boggles the mind. I like it.
This is one of Dali’s more famous pieces: Le Masturbateur.
After absorbing everything Dali, we went to the Notre Dame Cathedral to pay our respects. I wish my grandma (who recently just turned 90!) could have joined me in this trip if only to see this church.
After saying our prayers at the Cathedral, we crossed the River Seine to see the glittering (literally) Mayor’s office. Oh the Parisians just know how to leave an impression. This could just be the grandest government office ever!
Next stop, the Louvre.
