Oh Champs-Élysées

okay okay, things have settled down here. i went to paris last weekend, and guess what... I DIDN'T LOSE ANYTHING. my life is already back on track!! paris was completely out of this world amazing. take new york city, make everyone speak fluent french, and put the eiffel tower there instead of the statue of liberty, and you basically have paris.

i did:
the louvre
the musee d'orsay
the champs - elysees
the eiffel tower
the pere lachaise cemetery (where jim morrison is buried)
sacre couer
notre dame
arc de triomphe
saw sigur ros in concert [!!!!!!!!!!]
indian food
tibetan food
japanese food [twice]
averaged two crepes a day
and bought a piece of chocolate that was 4.20

everyone there is fabulous and dresses extremely well. let's take a note from the french and be less lazy.

    i'm so glad i recognize some of that art work; art history paid off!
