Los Angeles was the capitol of the culture in 2014 but Paris remains one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Old cafés, beautiful historical places, amazing stores, nice walks…
Here are ten of my favorite events and places of the year:

On the right inside the entrance, there is the Chapel of the Angels with two beautiful frescoes made by Eugène Delacroix: Jacob Wrestling with the Angel and Heliodorus driven from the temple.
