City Travel – Jardin du Palais Royal, Paris
The Delhi Walla in the French capital.
[Text and photos by Mayank Austen Soofi]
A family is having baguette and cheese. A middle-aged woman is jogging with her dog. A girl is kissing a boy. A young bride in white is walking with her man in a black suit. A pair of ‘sensitive boys’ is running together. The pigeons look better fed than their cousins in Delhi.
The Delhi Walla spends his first day in Paris in the shade of Jardin du Palais Royal.
Two symmetrical rows of trees make the garden. The benches are of wood and iron. All the trees reach to an equal height; their leaves look manicured to the same dimensions. The Louvre and the Seine is close, and the bourse is not far, but the garden, in the center of Paris, lies unaffected by the city that struts and rushes about it.
An underworld of intimate and discrete lives, the garden humanizes this aesthetically perfect city and makes a third-world foreigner like me feel at home.
Dark and inviting
No. F***ing. Way! You did it after all! You went to Paris! I’m SO taking you seriously from now on!
wow, these pictures are so beautiful and serene…And it is all soooo clean! Ah,Paris…I wish we had something like this in Delhi.
I hope you can make the most of your time in Paris.
congrats!! live the stay fully!
Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The art collection at Louvre is beyond comparison. I could spend a whole day looking at one painting in Louvre admiring its beauty. I used to spend hours sitting on a bench on Seine’s banks outside Louvre. Sadly, we have killed Yamuna in Delhi. Explore Paris and tell us a lot of stories about it.
Would be lovely to read Delhiwalla about Paris 🙂
The text and pictures both are beautiful
