|very foggy so this didn't turn out too well - but we could see all of Paris from here!|
We walked around the small town center, and loved all the local artists and markets.
We had brunch at Le Consulat, at Rick Steves' suggestion. I absolutely had to have an omelette before I left, since I love them and they were first made in France. Bo and I both agreed that it was by far the best omelette either of us have ever had.
Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the coffee. This may come as a surprise to some of you, but in all my 29 years of life, I had never tasted coffee. Just the smell of it used to make me nauseous until about a year into my adult career where everyone survived on it. I am not much of a caffeine drinker in general, but since French coffee is *supposed* to be sooo good... I figured I would try it. I was actually really excited about my first coffee!! I was also somewhat terrified that I was going to love it and be immediately addicted. I even made Bo take my picture.
The picture says it all...but no, I did not like the coffee. I did not like it at all.
After I fully washed the coffee taste out of my mouth, we made our way back down the hill towards the main strip. There was an interesting assortment of scenery along the way...
|lots and lots of windmills|
|quick stop for a croissant and a macaroon (or ten)|
|our walk ended in Pigalle, right by Moulin Rouge|
The line for Moulin Rouge was ridiculously long, so instead we meandered over to the Erotic Museum where there was no wait at all. Highly entertaining! Obviously, no photos allowed but this is a family-friendly blog anyway ;)
After that we headed back to the city for a couple café stops, and then it was time to head to the airport! Our last day in Paris was very bittersweet. We absolutely loved Paris and we were so sad to be leaving, but at the same time we were also extremely excited about going to Dubai to visit Amy and John!
|au revoir, Paris!|
