Lutetia Parisiorum ( City of Love )

...was the ancient name of what we now call Paris. The Parisii were a Gallic tribe and that is how it all began, the city of romance and love.

The city has always been the place for artists, musicians, and scholars to flock to and today it is the lovers of the world who come and visit this great city.

When we think of Paris, we think of the Eiffel Tower. This has become the icon of Paris and is known by just about everybody. Named after Gustave Eiffel who designed this odd tower for the Universal Exposition. An iron tower erected smack in the heart of Paris was considered unacceptable, a stark contrast to the elegance and refined beauty of the city, but eventually the city loved it and is now the trademark.

You are lucky that the Eiffel Tower is only a teleport away in Second Life and you should really go see this place. The Eiffel tower is surrounded by 1900 style buildings of Paris, including the famous Notre Dame and if you dare want to go into the Moulin Rouge. It is all here, a beautiful place.

Of course, we were not dressed for the snowy Winter this time of the year, but even if you came in swimwear the romance of love will warm you up.

I have no idea what we were talking about, but who cares when you can kiss at the top of the Eiffel Tower!

Even the pigeons are dancing, kissing, going in circles, mounting each other. Paris is the city of love, even for the birds.
