Meudon Observatory Park

Meudon Park clouds trees blue skies What do Rodin, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Johnny Depp all have in common? They once lived in Meudon, a charming suburb located about 6 miles/10 km southwest of Paris!

In France, there are many beautiful parks and gardens. At the Meudon Observatory, I got to see artfully trimmed trees, manicured lawns, as well as a splendid view of the Paris skyline.
