Our last day in Paris, it rained all morning, so we took advantage of that to sleep in until the crack of noon. When we finally rolled out of bed, we headed to Ile St. Louis and the Champs Elysee to do some actual shopping while the stores were open.
Apparently, we were dicking around a little too much because at that point we realized it was to late to see the Catacombs which we were planning to visit. So instead, we just hopped on the metro to see the Moulin Rouge. It was cool, but I just felt it looked very modern and re-done, not quite as “authentic” as I had anticipated. And smaller than I had imagined. I guess nothing can live up to my expectations after watching the movie!
We stuck around and ate dinner at some random, Americanized “Buffalo Grill” across the street, which I don’t particularly recomend. Again, I feel like I didn’t really get to experience French food like I had hoped.
We tried to make up for it by stopping into a cafe under our hotel that night for some creme brulee and capuccino. A normal couple would have shared one, but instead Daniela had a traditional, caramel creme brulee and I got my own, chocolate one. Not a bad way to end our time in Paris!
