The Tuleries is not my favorite place to visit. It’s not full of beautiful flowers like the Luxembourg Garden and there are acres of dusty dirt you have to walk through and I always come home with dust covered shoes. There are always tons of tourists too so it’s crowded. I’m not a fan of crowds. Anyway, I was there the other day and here’s what I saw:
The reason I went there was to check out the Colette Carnival taking place on the last week-end of fashion week. It was in a circus tent which should have been ten times larger. It was just packed with people and it was very hot. It had some fun things having to so with fashion mostly, lots of things for children and food. I could only handle it for about ten minutes though. I don’t like pushing through crowds and heat always gets to me. At least I got out and tried.
