We've returned from our Paris trip which was, in one word, amazing! Arrived late Thursday night (morning Paris time) and I'm still struggling to adapt to the time changes. We essentially lost a day somewhere! It rained most of our time there but it didn't stop us from seeing the sights. We managed to stay up late enough our first night in town to see the Eiffel Tower lit up, arriving just in time for the five-minute twinkling light show.
One of the best parts of Paris, of course, are the patisseries (pastry shops) and boulangeries (bread bakeries) on almost every block. Very dangerous...
One day we passed by this awesome chocolate shop with this huge chunk of chocolate in the window! They also had two chunks carved into hippos (see the book in front).
Here's my last "meal" in Paris before going to the airport Thursday. Yummy chocolate crepes! I will definitely miss the food.
But the best part of the trip? Getting to come home through Austin and having some grams time with Carl.
