Paris Day 3
Today I went to
a science center in
Paris. My first impression of when I saw it was that it was nice. The
building and surrounding area was huge. When I went inside, I got a
true sense of the place. This place puts most science centers in the
US to shame. It had 5 floors with 3 floors of exhibits and 2 floors
of library space. The special exhibit there was a Star Wars exhibit.
They had original sets from all of the episodes and it was really
nice. The best things in that exhibit was the original Yoda puppet
from episode 5 and the actual costumes for most of the characters
like Chewbacca, Luke, Leia, and Vader. The other exhibits were also
interesting. They had a lot of different things there and the level
of material was high enough to be informative to even college
students. For example in the math section there was a display on
Chaos Theory and order from Chaos. There was also exhibits focusing
on genetics, biometrics, sound and light. In my opinion this center
is far above anything available near Michigan. Just outside the
center is one of the best parks in Paris. On a Sunday afternoon, the
park was completely filled, and it wasn't tourist, these people were
French. After I left the science center, I went with a group to the
tallest point in Paris. This was also the worse part of the city to
be in after dark. There was a nice view from the Church at the top.
From there we went to dinner and then the Eiffel Tower. We went up to
the second level and the view from there is indescribable. Paris at
night is sooooo pretty.
Pictures follow, you know the drill
