Paris by night

Présentation en anglais
We arrive back in Paris after a long journey, our hearts pounding... the Eiffel Tower has just appeared in the distance, sparkling with a million lights.
How good it feels to see the capital again and feel that we could never get tired of its beauty ! Paris has the gift of surprising us and filling our heads with dreams. The familiar monuments pass before our shining eyes : the Arc de Triomphe, the Place de la Concorde, the Jardin des Tuileries, the splendors of the Louvre and on the other bank, the Musée d'Orsay, the majestic Conciergerie, and the Ile Saint-Louis. How could we resist ?
Strolling at a leisurely pace, crossing the bridges hand in hand, watching the bateaux mouches gliding along the Seine, imagining all those couples in love who have come from far and wide to have dinner together.
One thought leads to another, we wind our arms around each other and we both feel the same urge to experience the atmosphere of the bistros again, with their moleskin seats, mirrors and engraved slates, the ceaseless ballet of the waiters in their black waistcoats and white aprons - with or without mustache - and all those dishes we have missed so much. Onion soup with cheese, Chateaubriand with green pepper, rum babas...
