Dreams dreamed outside the dreams

Paris is way more than the Eiffel Tower.

Paris is tourists’ happy face in front of the objectives

Paris is a mixture of coffee and croissants in the mornings,

The million lights of the night.

The mystery of Mona Lisa,

The birthplace of elegance,

The seduction of the French accent,

Paris is the beginning and the end,

Of million of dreams dreamed outside the dreams.
