After Korbach and Dresden, Paris was the final city where our drama group was showing our production of [meˈliʎa]. So in November, I got to ride along in a transporter with our equipment for the eight hour drive to our partner school in Savigny-sur-Orge.
The last time I was in Paris, I went there by train. Now, entering the city by car during rush-hour I had an opportunity to see the near infinite expanse of suburbs that make up the Paris metropolitan area. These clusters of high-rise apartment buildings, with high-ways cutting through seemed a bit dystopian.
Since only half a day was allocated for setting up and showing the play, there was plenty of time for a trip to Versailles.
The park seen reflected in the Sky Mirror.
One night our host took us on a tour of the city center.
We also went to the roof-top terrace at the Galeries Lafayette where the following pictures where taken.
I’ll save some of the more touristy pictures for part 2 (coming soon).
