A thin slice of Paris

Jump to last reply

Since most of you seem to enjoy walking around Paris and discovering a lot of things at random -- even when you are on your way to a museum or monument -- I thought I would show you one of the things that you can be on the lookout for just about anywhere in the city, particularly if you are interested in architecture.

As you may have noticed, very few streets in Paris are straight and they sometimes meet at very wild angles. Even I have trouble with the map from time to time. :-) One of the most amazing things about these architectural quirks is that you can walk past some of these buildings hundreds of times and never notice a thing. It is only when you come at them from a different angle one day, or across the street from them, that you see how they were built and you think, oh wow!
