|Lou – Grand Palais
6:06 AM – Lou comes from Tasmania (Australia) where it is at present very cold (5 ° C). In Paris, it is summer. Early risers, we ran by taking advantage of the rising sun and the beautiful light which slowly spread on Paris.
In this Saturday of August 15th weekend, at 6 am, the city is deserted, Paris is an ideal route for the runners (the tourists will come numerous later during the day).
The glass roof of the Grand Palais exposed us its amazing transparency and its so light structure. Light seemingly, because the whole vault is constituted of about 8.500 tons of glass, steel and iron.
Pont Alexandre III, the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais were created for the Universal Exhibition of 1900 (We had spoken about it here).
Do you know that you can have a pleasant coffee break in the charming small garden of the Petit Palais (the entry is free)?
