A view of Paris from the plane. See the tiny, vertical structure towards the left? Ah yes, the Eiffel tower!
I know that it's about 5.30 pm on everyone else's watch, but it's almost 12.30 am here, and I am absolutely exhausted from running around the city since day one. Of course, I'm not complaining - good food, great culture, and copious amount of art history. It's all drool-worthy.
As I have been a bit lacking on the blogging end, I will only be posting one or two photos tonight. I'm having some serious sensation overloads -- from my taste buds, to my spirituality, to the aching in my feet. No photos -- or drawings, or videos -- will ever truly capture what Paris is. It's been an awakening to every one of my senses.
Not to mention the food... Did I already mention food?
My Croque-Madam (with oeuf!). The first dinner I had in Paris!
Today, we visited Notre Dame. I will have to write a much more detailed blog about this one later. There was so much to take in, and I can't even begin to express how I felt upon entering this building. For now, I'll just add a small teaser.
A view from the side on the outside. This was taken from Six/Huit, a small boat/restaurant that Eric Vogel (one of the instructors on the trip), a few of my classmates and myself decided to have lunch at. I finally got my crepe fix there (jambon a fromage a oeuf!). It will be the first of many, I'm sure. The weather was absolutely perfect, and the view was more than I could ask for.
And finally, a small teaser of the inside.
Forget about everything you thought you knew about religion, spirituality and yourself, folks. This church rips all of those ideas a new one.
Well, it's nearing 1 am here. I think it's time to take my weary body to bed. Tomorrow? Versailles!
