well friends, here we are. my last country. and it was a whirlwind of a trip too.
we literally only had less than 24 hrs in Paris and again, it wasn't enough time.
now, i've heard the negativities concerning France: people. RUDE. scent. SMELLY. looks. DIRTY. food. DISGUSTING.
but for me, it was completely the opposite. even with the language barrier, the French were completely friendly and helpful to us lost American girls. and i honestly didn't have any problems with how it smelled, nor did it look dirty. the food, well i do not understand why they eat french fries with their breakfast, but in all honestly wasn't that bad, i think they have the best desserts more than anything. and it was really aesthetically pleasing. i mean, Paris has so much to offer. i loved it.
now, on to the activities.
we seriously were on our way to breakfast, thinking that the eiffel tower would be far away, then to some what quote my roommate, when we say how close it was, she said Holy (SugarHoneyIceTea) and just loved the fact that it was so close to where we were eating.
ladies and gentlemen...the Smithsonian of France.
and i got to meet the queen of the lourve (that is probably not her nickname, i just gave it to her...MONA LISA!
but honestly, you could spend a whole week or more in this museum! just beautiful on how so many creative people there are way before i even existed!
don't get me wrong. i love the eiffel tower, i love the lourve. but i was really excited for notre dame! i loved the Disney movie, i was esmeralda for halloween one year, and just the architecture of it was incredible! it was beautiful!
this place you guys, exceeded all of my expectations.
as you might have figured, the Disney movie, The Hunchback of Notre Dame was going through my mind. the detail from animation was on point with the real thing. besides the eiffel tower, this by far was my favorite thing! touring inside is free and magical too!
now, lets not forget the real reason i came here...you just can't go to Paris and not have a crepe right????
the pictures speak for themselves on how wonderful they were.
paris, your such a romantic. one day i'll be back. until then, keep being beautiful and authentic with all the creations and inventions that you contain in your city of life, lights and love.
