Finally PARIS..



















Finally I decide to post about my trip! But, I have to do it in tidbits because of all the pics I took and places we went. So I am starting with our 5 days in Paris..which by the way was MARVELOUS.

C'etait genial!


Oh. and I must say that I totally came back from France having learned how to say Comment tu t'appelles? (what is your name) & Quel ├óge as-tu? (how old are you) & then of course I would answer saying "vingt deux ans" (which of course means 22 years old).
I felt so cool...haha

Not really though because my sister would go up to people and speak perfect French and then as soon as I would open my mouth they would immediately switch to English. So much for trying to act cool..

Ok and I also wanted to mention that I learned to eat. AND eat I did. For days. All kinds of things from crepes, cheese, cantaloupe w/ proscutto, baguettes, cheese, cheese, and more cheese--they call cheese fromage--doesn't that just sound better?
And then we ate foie gras (duck liver), frogs legs, and escargot. What an adventurous family we were!
But, it is safe to say I came back 20lbs thicker.

So 5 days in Paris we managed to see the Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur (first picture), Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, the Louvre. We did a boat tour on the Seine with my sister's host family's, a few huge 8 course dinners with them, music festival, awesome food (again more eating), Monmartre area, & of course picnicking in Paris's amazing gardens.

It was a wonderful trip and we stayed in the perfect location.

Next stop...side trip to Versaille!
