Day 1 in Paris!

After a 12-hour flight next to a retired, Indonesian businessman and then a French student (who taught me many phrases that I have forgotten by theis blog), two others on the same Contiki trip and I finally made it to Paris! After meeting about half the group, we were dropped off in the Center of Paris, where I ate crepes to my heart's content!

Tip #2: Crepes and croques (ham and cheese on bread) MUST be tried in Paris.

Although cheese and tomatoes are fantastic, crepes with nutella and bananas are THE way to go!

Of course, as expected the architecture was magnificent...

Opéra national de Paris and Cathédrale Notre Dame

My roomie, Jennie Tamyo, and the Eiffel Tower!

Since we were with Contiki, we had VIP group tickets to the top of the Eiffel Tower. On the hour every hour at night, the Tower lights up for a magnificent light show. We actually were climbing down the stairs, so we got to be apart of all the sparkles!

Sparkling light show

I think that I could live in this's ridiculously romantic!

Sunset overlooking Paris and all its enchantments

I've met about 45 other people this morning and it's a complete ball so far. Stoked for tomorrow!
