paris was fun, but different than i had expected. the mental image that i had of paris was in black and white with curvy narrow streets, ivy climbers, and women in the 1920′s smoking cigarettes with the extenders. i don’t know where i got that from but in actuality paris has a lot of really huge streets with lots of cars, and is a really large european city with lots of museums, sights and tourists. there are more charming parts of the city, but it was different than i had pictured. one surprise for me was the eiffel tower. it was really cool to see, and there were thousands of people hanging out in the park leading up to the tower. paris is definitely very grand.
here are photos from paris
