Cathedral Notre Dame
Last day in Paris!

We decided to head to the Cathedral Notre Dame first.  I can't explain to you how MASSIVE this church was.  I mean, it was just completely mind-blowing how big it is.  And beautiful, too.  Unfortunately, none of my pictures came out very well.  :(

From there is was off to the Louvre.  David and I split from the rest of the group because we all know about David and his art.  :D  Actually, going to an art museum just him and I is nice because he takes the time to explain to me about the paintings and the artists.  You can tell he's really passionate about the subject.

We saw a lot of things you only read about: the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, and Hammurabi's Code among many, many others.
  The museum is gigantic and you'd probably need two days to see it all and be able to take your time.  Instead, we went on a whirlwind tour and saw most of it, stopping only when David saw something that truely caught his eye.

It was absolutely exhausting!  I had to sit often because my feet were killing me from the last two days, and once I let David wander off while I sat on a bench.  I promptly dozed off and awoke only when my head fell back and my sunglasses went scattering across the floor.  :x

After that it was time to head back to the hostel to collect our things and head off for the train ride home.  David and I bought some french bread and salami to make sandwiches and I felt like the ultimate thrifty backpacker.  lol...  We were so tired that by the time we got home (about 7pm I think) we passed out without even eating supper (which is rare for a fatty like me, lol).

All and all our Paris adventure was extremely rewarding!  My favorite part of our summer so far.  I will always cherish the memory of sitting under the Eiffel Tower just enjoying life.  Ah!  :D
