I was intrigued when we’d seen break dancers in Nice. Of course, I had to stop and take some pictures we saw some talented guys in Paris. Of all the street performers we saw in Paris, they were my favorite. They were amazing.
The hill of the Trocadéro (officially named Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre, although it is usually simply called the Place du Trocadéro) is the hill of Chaillot, a former village. Today, it is home to the site of the Palais de Chaillot, and in Paris’ 16th arrondissement. We went to the Trocedero for a great view of the Eiffel Tower from the other side of the Seine River and for some people watching, but I think I ended up taking more pictures of the b-boys than of Paris.
The Trocedero has several museums including: the Musée National de la Marine (Naval Museum), the Musée de l’Homme (Ethnology Museum), the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine (City of Architecture and Heritage), including the Musée National des Monuments Français (The Museum of French Monuments), and the Théâtre National de Chaillot (National Theater). I’ve commented a bit on the large number of French monuments and can only imagine how much that museum could cover.
