I’ve been to Paris few times now…taking guests to places. Most of the time we end up going to the same usual spots that they want to see or we think they should see in Paris, like Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre,….and more places depending on allowed time. Last visit to Paris was with my aunt from Baltimore, Maryland. It was her first visit to Europe and we decided to take her to Paris for a brief trip in a weekend. Although I am not a great fan of big cities, but Paris never fails to surprise me with its atmosphere and surroundings. But this time I was determined to go somewhere in that Romantic city where we never put our feet before. It was Moulin Rouge…the classic cabaret which was the birthplace of modern can-can dance.
Mouline Rouge, located in the Red-Light District, is not only a cabaret club, but also a popular tourist attraction in Paris. It was founded in 1889 and with its signature red wind-mill on the roof, soon the place became a hot spot for entertainment in whole Europe and then in the whole world. I was checking some tickets online for the shows in Moulin Rouge…they are usually more than 100 euros per person…not my cup of tea. But I did enjoy going there and finally get the chance to see this glittery place (although during the day-time…but oh well). So here is a picture of Moulin Rouge that I took during our visit…may be someday I will get to go inside and enjoy its true beauty and talented artists in a dim-lit room with hundreds of audiences. But for now, I guess I will be happy watching Nicole Kidman’s “Moulin Rouge” in my DVD player 😉
