Day Six: Paris

Ever since i saw Passport to Paris as a little girl, i'd dreamt of going to Paris - it's romanticized in so many movies as 'the city of love' and all, but let's face it, they are just movies!  My stay in Paris was short (we spent two days & two nights there) and not exactly picturesque (our hotel was SO unbelievably sleezy & dirty), and it did have it's ups & downs (more downs than ups to be honest).  Maybe it's because i fell in love with London and didn't want to leave, but Paris was a letdown *gasp*.  I really think the hotel we stayed at put a damper on everything, it made everyone very pessimistic, and the language barrier didn't help at all, but we still tried to enjoy ourselves.  I really hate to sound like such a whiner, but i'm just trying to be honest!

We arrived in the late morning by train and spent the day on the bus, stopping to take pictures in front of the Eiffel Tower and at/in Musee de l'Armee during the day, and then at night we had dinner and stopped at Tour Maine-Montparnasse at night to see the Eiffel Tower all lit up.
I think someday i'll have to go back to Paris with a small, really close group of friends or a boyfriend (knock on wood ;) to have a more pleasant and lovely experience there.  Someday!

Just one more post left to go on my trip, i'm quite excited for it actually!  It involves Versailles & the Louvre. :)
