I think I took at least one boring picture.
Oh, and I managed to snag one of Justin.
You're required to take an elevator for the last part,which is where I shot the following video on the way back down:
The plan was to go see some catacombs but they closed early and the line was 2 hours long. BUMMER! So we're relaxing at the hotel for bit before heading back out for some more tonight.
Oh, and the best meal I've eaten so far this trip was a chocolate croissant this morning.
UPDATED: We went out for the best night (of two) so far. A trip to the Latin Quarter and the Sorbonne showed me my favorite part of Paris that I've seen. We were also met with an interesting dillema. It seems that most restaurants open at 7:00ish, but museums and buildings close at 6. So we arrive in Le Latin Quartere around 6 but the restaurant we wanted to eat at was LE CLOSED. So we tooled around the Sorbonne unable to actually enter any buildings, visited little bookstore with some expensive antique or otherwise imported books, and walked around a garden/zoo/archeological museum.
This bookstore was odd. They had some antique postcards, oldish French books and some strange American imports all for a high price. I could have paid 20 euro for a Muppets Take Manhattan book but I thought that was a bit exorbitant. Also I wanted to eat dinner.
We ate a bit nicer Italian meal tonight with some ravioli (abourgine? No, spinach) and bruschetta. The bathroom was on the second floor. Yesterday's restaurant had it in the basement. And at both places the manager laughed and pointed me toward the bathroom without me even asking. HOW DO THEY KNOW? Also, these managers all look like the same man.
Can you tell I've been writing these on my phone? It explains the poor grammar and even worse overall quality of my writing. Short sentences because it takes me three hours to write each one.
This zoo we saw was pretty excellent, it was mostly closed but they just had a little yard with wallaby hopping around (see picture below) and some deer and two ostriches which we saw from outside the park. The deer looked pretty bummed out but probably only because the wallaby were having a great time and the deer were jealous.
Things I learned today: if you don't want to pay for your water, ask for tap water, not just water.
Other things I learned: Step Up 4 in Paris is called Sexy Dance 4.
