I have no profile today because this week was just too busy to do it. I arrived in Paris on Wednesday, had Thursday to recuperate, and started school on Friday. In my free time, I strolled around Paris remembering the places I love and learning about new places. I met my classmates and made some new friends. I bought a monthly transportation card, went grocery shopping, bought a coffee maker and searched for a permanent apartment. New discoveries that come from living here. I also rediscovered some things about Paris that I had forgotten like that a café au lait is ordered as a café crème, that you must watch out for dog poop EVERYWHERE, and that the city shuts down on Sunday. Here are my photos and little notes from the week. I promise to be back with a new profile next Sunday!
Carousel and Eiffel Tower
Me at the Eiffel Tower
Coffee and Baguette. Heaven.
My first purchase: an Italian espresso maker
The Seine at Night
Locks of Love
At the Luxembourg Gardens
This is a salad. There is actually some lettuce at the bottom underneath the fried potatoes, bacon, liver, cheese and bread. Yes, liver. When in Rome…. err Paris.
La Grande Épicerie. A whole floor of wine, amazing cheeses and meats, produce, global foods, handmade pasta, etc. I could spend all of my money and time here. Easily.
Train Station for School
The Seine at Night. Again.
