A Busy and Very Memorable Sunday in Paris!

To begin the day, the entire crew went to the Sunday market to have a look at what kinds of things are offered at low prices. The market, located right on the Bastille corner involved many items from clothing and jewelry to French and Lebanese food.

As the day continued, many of us took time later on to attend the Tour De France race, which has been taking place in France since 1903. We watched the race at a very clear street by France’s The Louvre Museum, where some of the most famous images of the race have been taken from.  There were many people who attended the historic event and took photos of the last remaining races who have been on route for weeks.

After the race, few more of us attended a concert and watched singer and musician Sophie Hunger perform a number of songs in French and English as well. She is currently on a tour around France, creating a new fan base for herself.

As the night winded down, we finished the night with some photography and editing of our assignments for the critique we have coming up in our last days in Paris.

The most memorable part of the day for me was when a small group of us enjoyed the concert. As for me, it was my first concert, which happened to be in Paris, France. To me, this was a life long memory I will always cherish.

Walking around the hot streets of France, people can never become bored, because the people of France always have numerous events taking place at one time for the pleasure of it’s people and it’s culture.
