We’re pretty much just waiting to leave Paris now. We have a train to catch in under two hours, so we thought we’d kill some time at the nearby computer place. Sadly, the place is full of adolescent geeks, who are all overly-enthusiastic about their fucking gaming. Shouldn’t these losers be out somewhere getting wedgies and shit?
Anyway, we had a busy two days before this one. After Disney, we did the HELL out of Paris. On another bright, sunny day we headed up to Montmatre, a Bohemian district and home to the Sacre Coeur, and the highest point in Paris. That’s a whole lot o’ stairs, y’all. After that, we headed down to the Siene to take a riverboat to Notre Dame. Big church.
They were having an important mass there, so we didn’t climb all its stairs. Just as well. We hopped back on the riverboat, then on to the Arc de Triomphe. Big monument.
We had dinner on the Champs Elysées, which was awesome. We enjoyed it so much, we went back last night. After dinner, we saw the Eiffel Tower at night, all lit up. For 10 minutes every hour, they make it sparkle! Vive la France!
Yesterday, we did a bike tour of Versailles, because we rule. Sadly, Kim did not have her sun dress with a basket of flowers and a little dog. But, I believe she had fun anyway. I did as well, but now my ass is really sore.
We were going to do more today, but were too wiped out by the previous two days, and another travel hassle. So, we hung around and saw a movie– Inside Man. We weren’t too psyched for it, but it was the only English movie that fit out schedule. I dug it.
After 6 days, I’m ready to leave this city. I want to be somewhere smaller for a bit. This is a long-ass trip, y’all.
