Again, really bored while everyone else studies for finals (for the record, I’m not slacking- I just don’t have an exam until Wednesday, and its going to be extremely easy). This time, looking at pictures from last November, wishing I could be with all of my friends in Paris again!
Some of my favorite stuff from November 22, 2010 (the day of the official Christmas ‘lighting’ in Paris):
Obviously, we had to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. I don’t think I’ve ever been more FREEZING than I was on top of that thing, and I’m from New England, so that says a lot. Needless to say, I felt that I had earned a (tacky touristy and overpriced but amazing) glass of champagne for making it the top without catching hypothermia. Fascinating fact: the city lit up officially while we were on top, and we didn’t even plan it that way!
There was such a perfect, cozy holiday festival running down the street, with vendors selling everything from scarves to crepes to ‘vin chaud.’
We got crepes and hot wine! mmmmmmm
We took a picture with Père Noël.
And we found out that even Paris is plastered with ‘Jesus loves you’ stickers too!
Ahhh this was such a GREAT day!
