Day 2

Well today was a long day!

We got up kinda late because we were still tired after yesterday, we all got dressed and what not and had some breakfast. We headed to the Metro and stopped in a few shops on the way there. When we got to the Metro we hopped on and got off in Chatlet because we were going to the George Pompidou Centre.

We got there and bought our tickets for everything and we went up to see all the art, we saw some conceptual art, most of it was kinda weird and awful but there was some good things to be seen. After that we headed up to level 5 and saw some of the modern art. We left after that to go and get something to eat, we ended up in McDonalds…it was starting to rain and we didn’t want to look for anywhere else! It takes a lot of effort to order a wo mac here, for some reason they don’t understand that people might want a burger with no meat, crazy frenchies.

After lunch we headed back into the Pompidou Centre and we went up to the Dreamlands exhibition, that was pretty cool! You can read about it here if you’re interested. After a wander around there we went to Notre Dame, it’s just a short walk away. We didn’t go in but we took some photos and then we headed over to Shakespeare and Co. for a look, there was a group of Americans there and their tour guide got it all wrong, it was funny but sad at the same time!

We had a quick look around there and then we went to Saint Michel to have a look around and get something to eat, we were all wrecked by then so we went to Safran, we have been there a few times before and it was nice, it wasn’t as nice this time though. The starters were fantastic, I had potato pakora, so amazing! The main course however wasn’t as good, I had the dal saag and it tasted kind of vinegary and everyones was a bit cold, it wasn’t that awful though :/

After there we decided to walk home instead of get the metro, it was a long enough walk but we saw some nice sights on the way. Unfortunately my battery ran out near the end, but I was too crippled to even think about taking any more photos so I didn’t really mind. We finally reached Bastille and we went into Monoprix to get some water and a few bits, I was walking with a limp at this stage! I somehow managed to get to the apartment and up the three flights of stairs, I have blisters on my feet now and they’re killing me, hopefully a few plasters will sort me out tomorrow!

We’re planning on going to Pere Lachaise in the morning and then probably back to the apartment and then later on we’re going to Sacre Coeur and Montmarte, we’re going to find a few of the places from the film Amelie, Shane is looking forward to that one 🙂

So I’m going to head to bed now, or maybe watch a film with Jess if we can stay awake, looking forward to and exciting day tomorrow, it also hasn’t been too hot so that’s nice! 🙂
