Paris – conclusion

Eiffel Tower Paris France

I have to say I enjoyed Paris pretty much. Especially after the Terror attack you could see how strong this city is. Life goes on in there and people doing their best to show the world that they are not afraid of the terrorists.

The airplane of the flight Dublin – Paris was just half full. And I was able to smell the fear of the people inside the airplane. Even I was afraid, I didn’t know what I would find there.
