What a lovely day. Lady Spring is definitely showing her graceful face and aura.
I decided to head towards the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris . Ever since the Middle Ages the University of Paris has always welcomed students from all over the world in what they used to call the “College of Nations”. When the international university campus in Paris was created in 1925 it continued this tradition of the Paris universities: a tradition of welcome.
The Campus has a lush park open, obviously, to students but also to the general public.
Perfect day for a picnic
This is me, dressed up as a scholar, trying to melt in the students’ crowd. Oh how much I miss those days.
There is another undercover agent chilling.
Yes, this is the real deal. Totally disconnected with his surroundings and focused.
You see all kind of sights. Student-knights practicing jousting…
and student-lovers practicing the art of napping.
Inside the main building floats a quiet atmosphere.
Outside, the British character of the garden and architecture prevails.
The Cité internationale universitaire is a private foundation relying on the patronage and support of individuals.
Several structures have been designed by architects of note, such as Le Corbusier, Willem Marinus Dudok, Heydar Ghiai and Claude Parent. The residences are organized mostly by nationality, although residents in each maison are not necessarily from the country implied by the naming of the building.
Will certainly visit again andI highly recommend you visit the site on a sunny Sunday!
