Some Americans in Paris
Ah Paris. City of Lights. France, country of wine. Had forgotten how much I loved Paris, only took a few hours one night to renew the love affair. When can we go back? After navigating the metro to our shoebox of a hotel, we got cute and went out to Ile de la Cite, so I could show KK some of the sites. Got in the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame in one swoop! Walked a bit around that fabulous city of cities, and stopped at a cafe on the banks of the Seine for some wine and crepes. Yummmm. We read a book called "Without Reservations", where this woman takes off to live in Paris for a year, and chronicles her internal journey, and we have decided that we want to be her. But not just with Paris, everywhere. Wanderers. With no money. :) Anyway, Paris was beautful and hopping and fun, just the way its supposed to be, and we both cried a little bit inside at it being our last night in Europe together for a while, and now we just don't want to leave. Serious sad face.
