We started off the day with a walking tour of the Jardin du Palais Royal. The tour highlighted the different techniques used in the architecture. We also examined the different styles of the apartments in the city. We learned that through the years apartments went from being a round shape to being more flat.
My favorite part of the tour was getting to go to the Galaries Lafayette. This was the first department store in Paris. This department store was a big change for many Parisians. Many jobs opened up,however, many small businesses had to close.
The department store was definitely built to impress. The beautiful stained glass windows definitely persuade the customers want to leave with a purchase.
