If you ever visit Paris....

....don't forget your travel cages! Paris, the city of love, lovers and bird lovers. A few years ago my wife, Astrid, and I visited the ageless city of lovers. We visited all the famous sites of the city like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre , the Arc de Triomphe or the artists of Montmartre. But my personal highlight (please, don't tell that my wife ;-) was a visit of the Paris bird mart.

The Paris bird mart is held every Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 15:00 a.m. at the Place Louise-LÚpine on the Ile de la citÚ (Metro: CitÚ) just behind the famous cathedral of Notre Dame.
