Paris, Day 2: Jardin Tuileries

After checking out the African and European galleries at The Louvre, I walked back to the Jardin Tuileries, a large public garden located between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde. This time, I sat for a while and people watched.

Thousands of Parisians and tourists stroll, sit, eat and relax in the Jardin Tuileries everyday.
