    Moulin Rouge and the Parisian Streets

    September 1, 2018 in France ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Final destination for the day was to see the Moulin Rouge and photograph the famous red windmill. Moulin Rouge has been a long-time favourite movie of mine so it was great to see the structure in real life.

    I had read so many mixed reviews on the Moulin Rouge show that we decided not to see it this time. We had so many other things we wanted to see. Maybe next time we visit Paris we will consider it.

    Our first day exploring the streets of Paris has been fabulous (with the exception of our very sore feet and the heat) and we love the many different buildings, statues and fountains that make this city so beautiful. The avenues lined with trees, the friendly French people we encountered throughout the day and the wonderful vibe of the city made our first day in Paris so enjoyable.

    We finished back at the restaurant where we had started our day and enjoyed a delicious French meal and some friendly banter with our waiter. Magnifique!
