Editor's Note After a period of rest, this is the most difficult editor's note we've ever made. This time, our magazine loses all its color to take refuge in a crude black and white. We have to say goodbye to our former executive editor, Maya Parsons, who recently passed away. The same happens with Peyton Roalfe, writer of the section 'The World by Peyton Roalfe', who also left our world a few months ago. Two amazing human beings. They transmitted a lot of energy, enthusiasm, kindness and had an impressive team spirit. You have left a void in the magazine that cannot be expressed in words, girls. We can never forget you. We never will. As a tribute to Maya and Peyton, we bring back some of their articles from the past to remember them. One of them, Maya's experience at the XX Festival in Izmir. A very timely memory! As a show of respect, this time we will not show any ads in the magazine. AS SOMEONE ONCE SAID: I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE DARK. IT IS BETTER TO DIE THAN TO LIVE WITHOUT LIVING. 02

LANDMARKS OF PARIS ArcWe begin this article by showing the de Triomphe, perhaps the most remarkable place in Paris. In the Champs- Elysées area, it is one of the largest arches in the world. If you choose to visit this glorious monument, you can climb to the summit, from which you have a panoramic view of Paris, be it day or be it night. Then we have the Conservatoire de Musique de Paris, a monument to music lovers and one of the most prestigious conservatories in the world. In addition, it has an incredible design. You have to see it in person! Located in the historic center of Paris, on Notre-the end of the Ile de la Cité, the Dame Temple is the most visited monument of the city. Indeed, this architectural masterpiece shines over the entire district. It is a must-see in Paris. The sound of the bells will guide you to it, with their such charm that “it’s said to be the soul of Paris setting ablaze when they ring.” Finally, and if you want to sunbathe and take a good dip, we have the Paris-Plage. In the middle of the blue coast, a place of white sand and paradisiacal water, at the perfect temperature throughout the year! 10
