It rained most of the day today, but I didn't really care, because I'M IN PARIS! Here's what we did today:
In the movie Midnight In Paris, Owen Wilson's character spends some time at the open air flea market. I was intrigued so we started out the day at Marche aux Puces de St-Ouen (flea market). Due to the rain we moved through the booths rather quickly. When the rain started to get really heavy, we ducked inside this this little used book shop. We spent an hour browsing all the books. I also bought my first souvenir - a race car book for Cade.
The Musee du Louvre was on Chris' must-see list, so we headed there. We both love Egyptian artifacts so we spent the most time viewing the Ancient Egypt collection. Of course, we had to see the Mona Lisa (it really is small!) and Venus de Milo.
The Avenue des Champs-Élysées. What did we see? Lol, we saw White House Down.
Another Parisian landmark on both of our must-see lists was the Arc de Triomphe. I must that it was absolutely beautiful at night.
Up tomorrow: Notre Dame and the Moulin Rouge
