Paris

by Sam

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):

Champs Elysees

On top of the Eiffel Tower

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!

Lighting Festival on the Champs Elysees

There was such a perfect, cozy holiday festival running down the street, with vendors selling everything from scarves to crepes to ‘vin chaud.’

Champs Elysees

We got crepes and hot wine! mmmmmmm

French Christmas

We took a picture with Père Noël.

Jesus loves the French too

And we found out that even Paris is plastered with ‘Jesus loves you’ stickers too!

Ahhh this was such a GREAT day!
