My sister came over on Thursday! It was her birthday on Wednesday so how better to celebrate than with a couple of days in Paris. It could have started a little better with the Eurostar being a whopping 5 hours “en retard” due to the snow back home, but that didn’t stop us making the most of her 2 nights here. First of all on the Friday, I dragged her all around the 5th arrondissement with my classmates on a tour that was kindly put together and lead by our French teacher Mme. Lazerge. The temperature was freezing but it was good fun and we warmed up at the end with a “vin chaud” at a café on rue Soufflot.
The evening saw us have dinner with a few of the gang at a cute restaurant on rue Moufettard called “La veille tour” and then today (Saturday) we did the best whistle-stop tour ever! It started snowing last night so it was good fun running around taking snaps of my sister outside every building of interest on our way from the 8th to Gare du Nord en route to the Eurostar to take her back home. I have posted some photos that you can check out.
Hope everyone back home is coping with all the snow! I don’t think it’s going to stick around here in Paris for more than a day or two. Nonetheless, I am planning on spending the rest of the afternoon today inside in the warm catching up with what’s been going on in the world this week after I’ve had my head in the books all week - maybe I’ll even let the devil cat come and keep me company a bit later. Despite her temperament, she does quite like sitting on the end of my bed whilst I’m doing my work.
More updates soon.
