Located along the western edge of the 16th arrondissement in Paris, the Bois de Boulogne is the second largest park in the city. For those wanting to escape the rush of the city, or enjoy a pleasant promenade, a visit to the Bois de Boulogne is a must.

I just wanted to say, that like so many, I cannot believe the tragedy and horror that took place last night. Watching the news life for hours last night, and I cannot even imagine how the people of Paris are feeling. All my best friends still in Paris are safe and sound, but as with many this will not be the case – they are in my prayers and thoughts. Paris est dans mes pensées et mes prières, et j’espere tout mes amis en Paris sont hors de danger et comme avec la attaque Charlie Hebdo, la nation la nation sera unitéd au cours de cette période terrible 🇫🇷 I hope that Paris, France and the whole of Europe will stand united and show that the attackers will not destroy our hope in peace and solitary. “Peace for Paris” Illustration by @jean_jullien
