Posted in Paris at 21:33
We’re having a gorgeous late summer here in Paris. Hot days and cool nights – along with clear blue skies the sort you rarely see! Today it was easy to spot the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel from where I ate my lunch of arepa platana con queso y papelón from the Venezuelan food truck Aji Dulce that often stops by the business district.
Every day on my lunch break, I take a walk from our offices to the other end of La Défense, the Grande Arche. From the Arche you have a view of all the skyscrapers. Every day they look a bit different depending on the weather, their glass and steel transforming under the light.
La Grande Arche is currently being renovated, with its own custom scaffolding for the works. In the background you can see my very first Parisian offices in the sail-shaped T1 skyscraper.
