An Oasis in Paris

Just when I thought I couldn't stand one more minute of concrete city life, a friend took me on a walk along an incredible suspended garden called the Promenade Plantee in Paris' 12th arrondissement. Amazing! Rows and rows of lavender framed by rosebushes, birds singing, and (incredibly) empty, clean benches to sit on with nary a dog merde in sight. You are literally suspended in space and time, giving new meaning to the term "above it all."
