Paris Summary

Favorite things:
  • Marie-Antoinette's English peasant village at Versailles
  • the Louvre
  • the Musee D'Orsay
  • L'Orangerie
  • fresh baguettes every morning
Least favorite things:
  • Most of Versailles
  • the crypt at Notre Dame
  • the price of everything
  • not speaking the language
  • feeling like a schlub next to all of the impeccably dressed Parisians 
Favorite foods:
  • baguettes, obviously
  • these pastries that had a waffle cone-like shell, then a custard inside, and were topped with fresh raspberries
Least favorite food:
  • A quiche my dad bought the last morning that had fish in it.  I don't mind fish, but this was gross and I threw it up.
Most overrated:
  • Champs Elysees
  • the Mona Lisa
Most underrated:
  • The kindness of the French people
