Parc des Buttes-Chaumont
This has to be one of the most beautiful parks I have ever seen. Ever. It's a bit out of the way, and definitely not touristy. A lot of picnickers and runners were there. It's on a Butte, so it's hilly. It was quite amusing watching the people run in their various get-ups. I even saw one gentleman running, looking like he had just come from a fitting at Brooks Brothers. Really. And one young lady apparently counldn't run without the ubiqitous scarf. I just love the people here.
And the parc smelled like Spring. Like lilacs. And hyacinths. And green. I will definitely go back. On a weekday. They run like they drive here.
