Ooh La La, J'adore le Paris!
Yep, that's the Parisian version of an internet cafe! At least in this neighbourhood...
Despite the dodgy "internet cafe", this neighbourhood is pretty amazing. Somehow we managed to find a place in the heart of Paris, so we're a block away from the Louvre, down the street from the Seine, and within 10 minutes walking of Notre Dame Cathedral. It's a short train ride to the Eiffel tower, and there are dozens of other great sites and monuments within easy reach. We really lucked out.
Traveling with my parents has been fun, although I'm really missing Jeremy and wishing that we could have explored this incredible city together. "Springtime in Paris" just isn't the same when you're not with the one you love...
After an exhausting few days of exploring, we leave tomorrow evening for London, but not before going to visit the inside of the Louvre, to see the Mona Lisa and a few other galleries. Should be very interesting, although I'm going to have a hard time not pulling out my camera (apparently you're not supposed to use them inside the galleries).
I really hope that I get to return here one day.
I'll try to write a more detailed post tomorrow, with some of the 300 pictures I took (what can I say - the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower is incredible).
