My fabulous week in Paris

My fabulous week in Paris by Carlos Melia • I have spent an amazing week in Paris, after also a great time in Zurich, Madrid and Barcelona. It was the first time, after several times visiting Paris, that I was able to really enjoy this wonderful city, explore the neighborhoods, interact and socialize with the locals. I was there on duty for the Tourism Office of Buenos Aires promoting ” Buenos Aires Diversa ” ( LGBT ). For this we did Press Conferences and Press Dinners all over Europe and in Paris in particular at the George Restaurant at the Centre Pompidou.

I invite you all to follow my posts about Paris by clicking Paris by Carlos Melia. There you will access to all my posts on this wonderful city, the restaurants I tried, the hotels, and the attractions in general. Hope you all enjoy it.
