Hotel de Ville de Paris

Jan. 1, 2012

I used to drop in Paris when we participate some International Conference held in Europe. I can't speak French, but there are many spots to be seen and Paris is somewhat cozy place for me.

I had decided to visit Rouvre whenever I go to Paris for we can't see all exibitions at once. The last visit Paris was in 1993. It's been a long long time. I prefer to get bus rather than subway for easy to recognize where we are.

I was so surprised when I saw the City Hall of Paris at first time. I thought it might be some museum.

Jazz was brought in France in 1920s. There are many songs became Jazz standerd number made in France. But the best way is to listen Chanson at some old Chansonier where you can listen performance by unknown singers in your country.

As usual, this is my new year's drawing.
