Marinette: Dear diary, today at school, Miss Bustier asked us to list our top 3 favorite monuments in Paris. And it made me think of everything I love most about my city.
For number 3, I picked the Louvre Palace. It started out as a royal fortress, but today it's one of the greatest museums in the world. Whenever Cat Noir and I have to fight villains here, we're not just saving people, we're also protecting the one of a kind place filled with incredible works of art. Then again we never have time to enjoy the Mona Lisa.
My second favorite Parisian monument is the Trocadéro. Me and my friends from school hang out there all the time. It's also where I go when I need inspiration for my new creations. And the Trocadéro esplanade offers the best view of my favorite monument, the Eiffel Tower.
The Eiffel Tower proudly stands at 1,063 feet high. Looming over the whole city like a gigantic lighthouse. When you're up on it, the people down below look like little ants. I recently learned that the Eiffel Tower was built for the 1889 World's fair, and that it was almost torn down. Can you imagine? Luckily it stood the test of time. So I think the thing I love the most about the Eiffel Tower is that it's indestructible, like superheroes.
Every day I think about how lucky I am to live in Paris, and I'm even luckier to get to see all those places through Ladybug's eyes. No one knows the city like Cat Noir and I do. Even when we're on a mission, we can't help but stop for a minute and marvel at the magical city we live in. Actually, a top ten isn't enough; I forgot Notre-Dame, the Grand Palais, the Champs-Élysées...
All this talk about Paris has put me in the mood for a stroll in the sunshine. Bye for now, diary.
