I can't believe we're in Paris already and our trip is 1/2 over :( But anywho, I'm excited about going around Paris and seeing the popular places :)
(Btw, I woke up at midnight and looked out my window... And voila!!! The Eiffel Tower lights has been lit up...)
So, Today my hubby and I decide to sleep in and go to the Notre Dame Cathedral. Oh my goodness! It was beautiful!! I couldn't believe my eyes!
Here are photos from the inside and outside... Note: There was a lot of odd people outside of the cathedral... So we really had to hold on to our belongings (people randomly bumping into you, standing too close, or brushing up beside you)
I also lit a candle and said a little prayer to my patron saint St. Therese
After, we also went to the base of the Eiffel Tower... But the line up was over 2 hours long and it was getting dark and there were more shady people popping up (AND thank you to those who have warned me about the pickpockets around Paris)
Here's the photo of the Eiffel Tower from the bottom... It was so large I couldn't fit it all in my camera.
... So instead, we decided to postpone going up the Eiffel Tower for another day and walk to a bakery (in french - Boulangerie patisserie) called "Frédéric Sicard Boulangerie". This bakery is on - 34 Avenue de Suffren, and we bought a couple of macarons. We also walked to a local monoprix near the Paris military school (monoprix I would say is like the French equivalent of target or Walmart... It has everything from beauty to groceries)
Anywho tomorrow we have a jammed pack day :) and my feet are barking from all the walking. Seriously when I get back to Canada I will need to spend extra time at the gym burning all of these French pastries. Lol.
