For a while now I have had an ongoing cough for about 7 days and last night it reached new heights. I sounded like a Volvo Amazon from 1934 with a bad starting engine all night long. In the morning Peter and I decided we would take the subway to Champs Elysees to make sure we have seen the most famous street in Paris and straight away I find a green blinking cross, a Pharmacy! These are basically around each corner here in Paris, so very accessible. I explain my issue to the pharmacist and receive a “very potent medicine” in return with the advise that if this does not work within 3 days it is time to go to the hospital. So I take my first shot and hope for the best.
We walk up the mighty Champs Elysees and find the oddest thing, an expensive and exclusive bathroom shop. Point WC are selling extremely pricey toilets for dedicated toilet people. Here you can spend your hard earned money on pink toilet paper or a toilet sea with the Eiffel Tower printed on it. To top it off they also offer world class bathroom visits, so I walked out there a very happy man.
After this fantastic bathroom experience it is off to the next planned activity. We take the efficient Paris Subway to Fondation Louis Vuitton art exhibition in Jardin D’Acclimatation. To describe this Jardin I would say it is a mix of a garden association [anyone been to Trädgårdsföreningen in Gothenburg?], a baltic amusement park, nice playgrounds, a small zoo and an outdoor gym. As you can imagine this is a quite odd mix and inside this park you find the Louis Vuitton exhibition.
The Louis Vuitton exhibition is fantastic. The buildings are some of the coolest ones I have seen, like a futuristic Sydney Opera house. There is water running down stairs and fountains making water jump. Louis Vuitton is really going well at the moment! On a side note, we paid the entrance at a ticket booth and later on there is a young girl scanning our tickets again. The most obvious made up job ever?
