Yesterday at 8.20 pm sharp, the Eiffel Tower lit up in beautiful shades of pink. A great reference to support all women (and men) who are fighting breast cancer. The organization wishes tourists to take pictures at the pink Eiffel Tower and spread the message around the world - it is for a good cause.
The chocolate show
Can anything be even sweeter than the pink-colored Eiffel Tower? The chocolate show, perhaps! Why not give it a try? The Salon du Chocolat presents the history of chocolate, from the discovery of cocoa 500 years ago to the present.
Chocolate dresses, truffles, cakes, tons of fruit, irresistible aroma and chocolate experts. All this can be found at the spectacular chocolate show, which takes place from 29.10. to 3.11. at the Place de la Porte de Versailles in Paris. The Salon du Chocolat, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, holds a unique opening ceremony, co-organized by the Children of Africa Foundation.
20 producing countries from all over the world will reveal the secrets and riches of their cocoa! You will be able to make your own chocolate from carefully selected cocoa beans. Cooking and chocolate tasting courses are prepared for the youngest ones, in the age of 4-10.
The entrance fee is 360 crowns, children up to 12 years will pay 170 crowns and the youngest visitors up to 3 years have free entry. Admission to the opening ceremony is CZK 880.
