Discovering Mur des je t’aime, Paris

Lovely place to discover !!

Paris is well described as "The city of Love" yet often overshadowed by larger landmarks such as l'Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower.

After visiting all the mainstream and famous places in Paris, we were down to discovering various arrondissements.  On our list was one of the most famous neighbourhoods of Paris called Montmartre.  It's by pure curiosity that we discovered "Le mur des je t'aime" walking from the metro station to the Sacré Coeur Basilica.  You will find the wall in a small square called Jehan Rictus.

The mural artist Claire Kito get the attention of lots of tourists.  The wall is composed of many tiles with inscriptions and messages of love.  We noticed many tourists anxious to get the perfect shot in front of love testimonials.  All writings includes words 'I love you' in all major languages and according Wikipedia.  Apparently, they also appear in rarer languages like Navajo, Inuit, Bambara and Esperanto.

Standing at the very top of the mural is a woman, blurbing out the phrase ''Aimer c'est du désordre... Alors aimons'' which translate to "Love can be messy, let's love anyway".

We recommend that you make some time to visit this place.  The square also includes a beautiful and colourful garden during spring and summer.  Also, this is one of the most beautiful and coolest areas of Paris.  Oh yeah, we forgot to mention, it's completely FREE !!! So bring your camera and pucker your lips for the snapshot !
