Summer soon

Summer soon, or how I enjoy the sun and warmth.

Hello, everyone!

Ah, finally it has warmed up here. I am immensely happy about the beginning of this spring. I know it was snowing in some places recently. Whoa! Perhaps some of my readers love snow, but not in the month of May, HA HA!

Attention! Read this post until the end, for a pleasant surprise awaits you! 🙂

So, summer is coming, hurray! I think the wonderful lines of the poet Edel T. Copeland will tell better than me about this wonderful time of the year.

Rippling crystal waters shine like silver to reflect summer’s glow.
Soothing and calming in rhythm, echoing its lyrical flow.
Magical music of nature, a symphony of splendid delight.
Skies like blue oceans in paradise, birds soaring to grasp full flight.

Gentle swans glide gracefully, elegant yet proud and strong,
Birds and bees in unison, the joyful hum of nature’s song.
Rolling summer meadows shimmer, like jewels in Mother Nature’s crown.
Embellishing fields of emerald green draped in its golden gown.

Light sweet air blows softly, scented by sweet cherry blossom in bloom.
Delicate, pretty petals lifting to dance in harmony with summer’s tune.
The sounds and scents of summer, its melody light and free.
Sands of gold that glisten, embracing waves of a warm and whispering sea.

By the way, I have added a detailed video to each tutorial from the Summer Mood collection (each video is about 35 minutes long). And now you can watch a short video on my channel. https://youtu.be/9t4sa1Aq5eo

Unknown Paris

Unknown Paris, or 10 facts you haven’t heard of!

Hello everyone!

You may have already seen my new little 3D model of the Eiffel Tower.
You know that this tower is the symbol of Paris, the capital of France. And yes, I’m sure you know the history of this tower. The French at first demanded to remove “this iron monster” and not to spoil the face of the city. But, fortunately, this did not happen. The famous Louvre, Versailles, Montmartre, Champs Elysees … How many famous sights there are in Paris!
But there are several unknown facts. I want to tell you about this.

Unknown Paris

France’s main skyscraper

La Tour First (also called Tour CB31) in the La DĂ©fense business district has been considered the tallest building in Paris and France for four years now. The height of the tower, the construction of which took a decade (from 1974 to 2011), is 231 meters.

The largest sundial in the world

The 23-meter obelisk of Luxor, more than 3,300 years old, erected in the Place de la Concorde, was transported to France from Egypt in 1836. The top of the two-ton monument is crowned with a 3.5-meter pyramid, directed towards the sky. This is not just a historical treasure, painted with ancient hieroglyphs to glorify Pharaoh Ramses II, but the largest (and possibly the oldest) sundial in the world.

Only one road sign STOP

There is only one stop sign in all of great Paris. You can look at the metropolitan curiosity in the 16th arrondissement. You ask why the sign is not used? The traffic system in Paris is such that drivers on the right always have an advantage on the road.

Shortest street

Rue des Degrés, the shortest street in Paris, is only 5 meters 75 centimeters long. The record holder is located in the 2nd arrondissement, between the Bonne Nouvelle and Strasbourg Saint-Denis metro stations.

Espresso coffee for a maximum of 1 euro

The French love strong black coffee. This drink is also popular among Parisians. To the delight of metropolitan coffee lovers, there are more than 180 cafes scattered around the city, where you can buy aromatic espresso for only 1 euro.

Paris = Lutetia = dirt

Built on the site of an ancient Celtic village (founded in the 3rd century BC), Paris was originally called Lutetia. Almost everyone knows this. But did you know that the word “Lutetia” comes from the Latin lutum, which literally means “dirt”? In the days of the Romans and Gauls, there were no beautiful embankments with bright illumination and lanterns, and the banks of the Seine were buried in a swamp.

Roman ruins

In Paris, real Roman ruins have survived to this day – a stone amphitheater, erected between 53 BC. and 212 A.D. As established by archaeologists, on the site of one of the residential quarters of Paris, there was once a district of Lutetia with baths, an aqueduct and marble fountains. There was even an arena that could accommodate up to 17,000 fans of violent reprisals and theatrical performances. The remains of the Arènes de Lutèce are in the 5th arrondissement on rue Monge and are open to the public. The entrance is free!

The oldest cafe

The oldest cafĂ© in Paris has been operating since 1686 and is located in the 6th arrondissement at 13 Rue de l’Ancienne ComĂ©die. Le Procope for the first time treated Parisians to excellent coffee, which the owner of Procopio Cuto brought from Italy. Over time, the cafe became a cult place: such personalities as Diderot, Danton, Marat and Voltaire, and later – Alfred de Musset, Paul Verlaine and Anatole France loved to drop in here.

Isle of CitĂ© – the cradle of Paris

The Isle of CitĂ©, where you can admire the majestic Notre-Dame cathedral and the Pont Neuf bridge, can be safely called the “cradle of Paris”. In ancient times, there was a Celtic settlement on the site of modern quarters. In the 50s BC, the Romans conquered it, making the island the headquarters of Gaius Julius Caesar. The military planning center was connected to the rest of the city only by a pair of wooden bridges (on the site of the present Pont Neuf and Pont Saint-Michel), and a powerful wall fenced it around the perimeter. The inhabitants of Paris took refuge on CitĂ© more than once during the siege of the city.

The capital of terraces

Speaking of Paris, one cannot fail to mention the terraces of cafes, bars and restaurants, of which there are a great many in the brilliant capital. More precisely, almost 10 thousand! It will take more than 29 years to visit all the capital’s terraces without even sitting down for a cup of coffee.
