Enchante

Enchante! Paris, home of beauty and the beast, and a few weekends ago, home of Rebekah Keen. For me Paris was a vision of the Notre Dame Cathedral, The Louvre Museum, Mona Lisa, the Eiffel Tower, fashion shows, street protests, shopping, sightseeing, markets, and the metro. I thought the language would perhaps be a tough barrier to overcome, but we had no problem with it whatsoever. Everyone we talked to spoke English, and if they didn’t they would go get one of their friends who did. My favorite part was the night the entire city of Paris did not sleep. We went and hung out under the sparkling Eiffel tower. It would glitter every hour on the hour. So beautiful! On my way back I bartered with a street vendor and got 18 keychains for 3 Euros, Which is a great deal fyi. We also ate snails. I did not like them. It’s not that it tasted bad, it’s just that as I was eating it, I kept getting an image of a slug in my head, and then I had a hard time not gagging and chewing. It was a great experience though. I also love the pastry shops everywhere. Shopping and pastries around every corner.. it’s no wonder I love Paris so much!
