Merci Beaucoup 10

Everything in Paris is exactly like you think it is. It's all the positive and none of the negative. Instead of using too many words to try and explain all that Paris is, I've decided to just do a list. And include some pictures. Also, today marks the 126th anniversary of the opening of the Eiffel Tower to the public. These are cell phone pictures btw. Don't judge.

The first picture I took in Paris
Just kidding. It was this one from the night before. The traffic was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Insanity is all it was.
The List:

Eating dinner in a corner cafe
Eating crepes from a stand along the Seine
his money container says "to buy a Porsche" 
Lovers bridge
The peeking view of the Eiffel Tower from our 6th floor room
The subway
Music in the subway
looking at all the well dressed people in and on the metro

Starbucks in the rain

Our purple umbrella
the shops

fresh fruit

scarves everywhere
sparkling lights
loud Americans
quiet Parisians
