A friend of mine from Portland–Becky–came to visit me in London for a week. She got in yesterday and today we took a train to Paris for the weekend!
Our hotel is a bit out of the center of the city but it turns out we are in a great area–La Defense which is a business district that is very clean and safe and our room is on the 14th floor and has a spectacular view of Paris! Right now as I’m typing I’m looking out our window at the Eiffel tower which is twinkling as it does every hour on the hour for a few minutes. I love it!
We’ve only been here for a few hours and we’ve already went to my favorite crepe place, seen the eiffel tower twinkling at night, and went to Notre Dame at night. Tomorrow we are going to go back in the morning and go to the top of each of those, and then head over to the shopping area and shop for the afternoon!
