As I mentioned at the end of my last post, my most favorite cousin, Melissa, has finally arrived in Paris for her visit! If you can’t tell by the excessive exclamation points, I’m very excited about it!
So far I’ve shared with her the kaleidoscope stained-glass windows of Notre Dame, the magical Zara(s) of Les Champs Elysées, the cute boutiques lining Rue Oberkampf, the adorable used bookstore café at Merci, the unmatched baguettes from my favorite local boulangerie, the unrivaled charcuterie et fromage plate at one of our favorite bars, and the infamous Bastille Marché crêpes. We also visited the Centre Pompidou (some very cool and very strange things there), danced (too much) at Fête de la Musique, attended a trés Parisian flat party, strolled by La Tour Eiffel at night (and stopped for some pictures), and danced some more (lots more, until 5 in the morning to be exact). A lot of activity in just 2 days!
I can’t believe I am all done with French school and Melissa is here visiting…time is flying by! Feels like we just moved into our apartment here yesterday…
Now we are off to Le Marais for some Sunday shopping- ps, if you are in Paris and notice all of the stores are closed on Sundays but you’ve been bit by that pesky shopping bug, head to Le Marais! Everything is open! C’est manifique.
Until next time, ciao. XO
