Parliament Europeen

The European Parliament is located in the Louis Weiss Building in Strasbourg. The Parliament holds 12 sessions a year and this is legally mandated by the EU. Last May 9, we were lucky enough to be able to enter the building because of the 60th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration (a proposal to create something like the EU 60 years ago). It was a tiring tour (once you go in, you have to finish the long queue), but it was pretty cool to enter the building where one of the most powerful legislative bodies in the world meet.
