In my last post, I mentioned that I will be leaving Paris soon. In fact, I no longer have a flat here but am staying on a friends couch for a few days before doing some traveling. This is disorientating to say the least. So much is up in the air right now. I don’t have a place to live. I’m trying to start a company but need funding (please, Kickstarter!). I’m saying goodbye to my beloved Paris and to all the wonderful friends I’ve made here. I’m saying hello to my closest friends – the ones who have stuck by me through thick and thin – and to beautiful, sunny California. It’s enough to make my head spin.
I’m trying to make the most of the last few days that I have here by visiting some favorite spots and by checking off a few more places off my never ending list. I finally went on the bateaux-mouches boat tour which is where I took that photo of the Eiffel Tower. Amazing! My favorite part of the tour was seeing people hanging out up and down the Seine, drinking wine, laughing, dancing and just having fun. It finally felt like summer.
I went to L’as Du Fallafel for this crazy, loaded fallafel sandwich. This place is an institution in Paris and rightfully so. Fresh and crispy, the fallafel are loaded with cabbage salad, yogurt, eggplant and hot sauce. Yum!
I plan to keep distracting myself with fun activities or I will loose my mind watching the Kickstarter campaign. I’m doing everything I can think of to attract attention to it without becoming obnoxious. In the meantime, I’ll share my last few weeks in Europe with you and try to enjoy the remaining time I have left!
