Parisian Ceilings

October 5, 2017

I absolutely loved my recent visit to Paris with two other IES Abroad students! We were able to see so much of Paris over the course of 5 days, and we were fortunate to have received a student discount for almost everything we did (the only exception was climbing the Eiffel Tower). As strange as it might sound, my favorite part of Paris has to be the ceilings. It seemed that no matter where we went, I found myself looking up and each time my eyes found a beautiful piece of art or noticed the detailed architecture of a building. Following is a collection of unedited photos from my trip that will hopefully give you a good glimpse into some of the amazing things I saw this past weekend, with features of Parisian ceilings (and some floors), of course!
