Bonjour from gay Paris! (How smug do I sound?!),
today was our first of three days in Paris and we’ve certainly made the most of our day. No joking, I think we probably walked 10 miles which is good because I can’t pass a crepe shop or bakery without eating something. and there are ALOT of creperies, (creperes?) and bakeries in Paris.
I also had to stop every few minutes to take photos of some stunning and unique street art.
So far, I think the Latin Quarter is my favorite part of Paris. It’s always buzzing with young people and there are art galleries, book shops and cafes everywhere.
Although, the only other time I’ve been in Paris was during Christmastime and Paris in August, is a strange place. Over half of the shops are closed because we learned that August is apparently when Parisians go on vacation. But there is still LOTS going on and TONS of tourists.
Tomorrow, we are going to try renting bikes (1 euro per hour!) and see the city. http://blog.hostelbookers.com/travel/paris-by-bike/ has some good routes I think. We will see if I survive.
