City Of Wonders
Traveling to foreign countries is a wonderful thing because it helps you get in touch with your cultural side, and one of the best places to help expand your cultural is in a city in France known as Paris. It is known for its many astonishing tourist attractions. Paris is also famously known for its famous restaurants and cuisine, museums, theatres and movies, and last but not least the fashion. Paris is also a great place to visit in the summer time because of all of the beautiful scenery. Back when my best friend came back with pictures from his trip to Paris I was filled with amazement. Ever since that faithful day it has been my dream to go visit Paris.
Paris is famously known as the city of love.

The rules of rugby are the ball cannot travel forward off a player’s hands. That means no forward passes or dribbling. The two ways you can advance the ball is kicking the ball or carrying the ball forward. Passes have to be either lateral or backwards.
On each team, eight of the 15 players, known as the forward pack, bind together, three in the front, four in the middle, one at the back and eight alternates. They push forward in the same formation, while the team that didn’t commit the foul puts the ball into the scrum, hoping it comes out at the back of the scrum on their side. Around 90 percent of the time, the team that puts the ball in gets the ball back. When one player tackles another there are three rules for the tackler. Don’t tackle around the neck or above, do not piledrive opponents…
