Liz and Mary visit Paris
Paris Travel Blog› entry 7 of 12 › view all entries
The two weeks I had for winter break were jam packed with visitors...my former colleagues Mary and Liz (travbuddy: mayerel) came to visit, closely followed by my aunt, and then my friend Christine.
Mary had never been to Paris, so Liz and I had fun showing her around. Liz had been a couple times, and had a list of things she wanted to do and see, which was amazing because it meant that I didn't have to come up with an itinerary. We went to the Musee d'Orsay, to the Orangerie, the Louvre, Sacre Coeur (which I love, and which I especially love at sunset), to Bon Marche, to Notre Dame, to the Champs Elysees, to my favorite sandwich grec place on Rue de la Huchette...We even took a little day trip out to Versailles.
Since I had visitors, Sally hosted another raclette party...they'd never had it before. Like I mentioned before, raclette is an extremely fun meal to have with friends...it's just rowdy and hilarious. This particular raclette meal was probably the best one of all that Sally hosted. Mary, Liz, and I brought lots of wine to add to Sally's already bountiful supply, and we all drank and ate and were merry.
Mika: Brad Pitt
Me: Penelope Cruz
Sally: Chris Brown
Etc. So, needless to say, since you can't repeat names, there ends up being lots of drinking. It's a fun game...try it sometime.
While we had a great time in Paris, we were really getting excited about our upcoming adventure to Morocco, where we'd be spending three days...
