So far, we have been in Europe for about three weeks. I have accumulated many photos of the different places we have been to, so I thought I would share a few with you guys. Below you shall see 5 pictures from Paris, Frankfurt, and even Brussels!
This is a view of the Frankfurt city skyline. This specific shot was taken from on top of a shopping mall, which is kind of odd. This is right after a free walking tour round Frankfurt that showed us cool stuff, like medieval churches, and sad stuff like drugs and prostitution, which is a pretty cool idea.
This is the Venus De Milo in the Louvre in Paris. The statue is a marble sculpture that was originally meant by the sculptor to be viewed only from the front. You can tell because of the relative lack of detail in the back. Also, the statue is actually from Greek times, so it should probably should be called the Aphrodite De Milo. By the way, I still don’t get why so many Greek statues are usually half nude!
This is a graffiti inscription that I found on a lamp post in Paris. I find this inscription amusing because Paris is known for amazing food and Parisians love their food!
This is the European Parliament in Brussels where most of the government works except when they go to meetings in Strasbourg once a month for four days to vote. This seems odd because it means thousands of people each month, which must be an extreme hassle. There are tons of people clogging up the train stations and other systems that cost a lot of money.
I am super glad to be able to travel to all of these awesome places, and I can’t wait to go see more in Europe! See ya later! This is one of the many lock bridges in Paris where couples buy a lock, write their names on it, lock it on the bridge, and then throw the key in the river to symbolize their eternal love. This is a odd tradition to me, because it seems like eventually all the bridges in Paris could collapse due to the weight of the locks, like the original lock bridge almost did.
Ps. Many of you probably know that we are already in the UK, but as I am going through all of my photos, I will make sure to post the best in the next blog!
