hmmm l me see if i can remember what happened today... okay we arrived via train in the morning and we headed straight for our hostel to drop of our bags.. the hostel was shit of course.. and expensive but atleast or our roomates were cool!.. they were australian.. some were nurses from adelaide and worked as nurses in ireland. so after we walked down the streets and we were looking for food.. we found this thai place which was pretty good and was relatively cheap... after our good lunch we went and bought a few magnets and headed down to notredam cathedral.. but we didnt go in cause there was this huge line.. so instead we headed toward another park... the city was really beautiful... but going through the city we had to use the metro.. the metro was horrible.
. it was dirty and it stinked like urine or bathrooms.. hahah and lotsa homeless people sleeping in the terminals using the platforms as bathrooms. we thought we would meet lili today so we bought some chips and beer so we can celebrate new years together.. once we got our stuff we headed to the louvre and took great pictures and went inside the pyramid.. just like the da vinici code hahah.. we didnt go in the main museum cause we didnt have any time.. then we headed to champs elysee and walked all the way down to arc de triumph.. the streets were lined with blue lighted trees... it was a long street.. and we had to keep crossing the street to get good center pictures.... did we eat dinner?? im not sure.. ooo we went to look for moulin rouge!! but we never found it.
Dunno how to spell Champs Elysee.. alright?
haah we were close though... and we headed toward sacre cur... and was harrased by these people on the streets.. and grzechu bought a cool scarf cause he was jealous of my scarf. hahaha
at this point in the church i was really tired and i wanted to stay seated in the church. i wanted to wait for the mass in 30 mins but grzechu wanted to find food... so we went back down the hill to try to find some but again we never found anything and i ended up eating nutella.. hahah so we headed back up to the church where i fell asleep in the church but i had to keep standing up cause of the ceremonies so i dint really get that good of a sleep... after that it was almost midnight so we decided to go to the eiffel tower... lilis flight was delayed so we had to pick her up the next day.
new years day celebration with lili!
.. the ride in the metro was packed!! full of drunk russian girls and puke all over the floor... we wre like tuna in a can....with vomit and loud drunk girls. hhaha but we finally got to the surface... counted down... saw the eiffel tower.... it twinkled with lights.... where the fireworks???? just the lights??? it was a bummer... lame... so we decided to head back to the hostel... when we got back.. the australian girls got back around the same time as us but they were drunk and hellarius!! they offered me more nutella.. ahah but they headed back out.. some of them did... so we headed to sleep knowing we were going to meet lili the next day..
Paris part 2
Okay so today we get to see lili!! i forgot where we met her but once we did off we go to see the eiffel tower in the day time.
it was kinda foggy so we only saw the bottom half and grzechu wanted to see the trains go by as usual.. we took awesome photos with the beer we bought for yesterday in our hands and decided to walk the rest of the way to the tower.. there was a long line to go up ofcourse but we werent interested cause we had to pay and we didnt have much time left.. so instead we ate bread and kielbasa which we still had and finished our beer. i know i will come back to paris and i will climbed that damn tower. hahaha but in the mean time we were getting hungry after seeing the tower so we decided to find someplace to eat. we ended in the same area where me and grzechu ate the thai food.. but this time we found an awesome french restaurant which was pretty much empty besides us... and wouldnt you know it.. its start to fill up fast... it always seems to happen when we show up.. hahah .. coincidence??? anyways we ordered some good food that day.. and again great conversations... after that we had to go catch a plane to madrid so we had to say goodbye once again to lili but we knew we would see each other again in a few day... and so end my paris adventure.. for now..
