Saturady after the ward festivities, E and I went out to discover the Parc Monceau. I've heard several people rave about it, so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.
I must admit, the parc is absolutely gorgeous. My big problem with it?? Too many people. The grass looked like a mosh pit, except instead of jumping around to music, people were strewn out all over the grass and each other. It would probably be really lovely at like 7:15 on a work day.
I still got a few pictures that I like, so here you are:
This last one just makes me laugh. Apparently there is a "horse ride" that kids can go on where a guy ties 6 horses to this elaborate rope system and then takes 6 kids at a time around the park on horses, parents marching alongside their child. What they don't have is someone to come along after the horses and clean up the unfortunate souvenirs they leave behind on the pathways.
