Dear Paris: A Photo Essay and A Love Letter for the City of Light

Dear Paris,

I have loved you ever since I was 10 - the first time I ever laid my eyes on you.

I was too young to know where you are exactly or how many miles you are from my little town. But, I promised myself that one day, I will be staring at your famed Iron Lady not just in my world atlas book but in real life.

I loved you more when I turned 18, when I embraced the fact that I'm a hopeless romantic and then I came to know that you are the most romantic city in the whole world.

A Love Letter for Paris

I loved you even more when I was 25, when I set foot in the Middle East and realized that you are halfway closer.

And I loved you the most when I turned 34, when I finally got to fulfill my long time wish of being IN you.
