Paris Walks #39: Parc Monceau

9 Aug

Another Sunday, and another picnic. It really is the best thing to do on a nice Sunday in Paris!  We decided to head to Parc Monceau which was created in 1760 by the Duke of Chartres. He ended up losing his head in the revolution, and so the park became a public place…

After a quick lunch by the pond (likely considered a lake here, but we’ll stick with pond, although slough sounds about right…) we headed off on the rest of the walk.  The rest of the journey headed through “little Russia” which save for a Russian church and a grocery store was not very Russian at all.  Finally we headed up to the Metro station past the open air market which had unfortunately closed earlier so not much to see there…
