Catherine Green - What I love about Paris

May 30, 2012

While we're in the same place for the next few months we've invited guests to contribute to There & Here by telling us what they love about their favourite place in the world. Our guest this week is Catherine from Johannesburg.

Catherine Green - Paris, Musee d'Orsay

What I love about Paris is their amazing museums, interesting shops and beautiful architecture. Yes I know I am a walking cliché naming Paris. But if I’m honest it was one of the most magical places I have visited. I can’t wait to go back there one day.

The Musee d’Orsay is one of my favourite museums in Paris because of its architecture and the quality of its collection. The building is a conversion of the Orsay railway station, which was built for the Universal Exhibition in 1900.

Cathering Green - Francois Pompon Sculpture
One of my favourite pieces in the Musee d’Orsay is a sculpture by François Pompon. When I took this photo I decided not to crop out the old man on the left hand side – they seemed like kindred spirits.

Catherine Green - Paris Bikes

Paris is a great city to wander around in. They have a great public bicycle rental service that allows you to navigate the city with ease. That‘s me in the blue dress eyeing a lovely collection of antique tins.

Catherine Green - Parisian architecture
Parisian architecture is some of the finest in the world in my opinion. I particularly liked these two buildings because they juxtaposed old and new Paris.
