Parc Monceau

Parisians love their parks -- and they have beautiful parks. On sunny days, you can see all of Paris out at the parks, enjoying the sun. One of my favorites is Parc Monceau in the 8th arrondissement. It was created in the 18th century for Philippe Egalité, the cousin of Louis XVI and the father of King Louis-Philippe I. There is a small playground for young children, a skateboarding/rollerblading area for older kids (and adults!), a cafe, a merry-go-round, and swings. There is a pond with ducks and a nice path around the perimeter which we used for jogging when we lived there -- each lap is about 1/4 mile. There is a large grassy open area in the middle of the park where our kids would frequently meet for squirt gun fights or to launch "stomp" rockets or play frisbee. We even tried a pick-up game of American football with some other Americans, but it was a bit cramped! I highly recommend visiting Parc Monceau on a sunny day with the Herald Tribune and an espresso from the cafe.

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I
promise your life will never be the same
again.If you find no relevance in the help I offer
I solemnly appeals do not be vindictive and go
in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. All inquiries should be
directed to the Priest Abija email below Email: or
