Our final day in Paris!
We started the day by paying a visit to our old friend Mona.
Having trudged around the Louvre like zombies, we decided it crucial to get se food in us so we stopped by Laduree, the famous tea and macaroon place. I wouldn’t say it was a home run, it fact it was our least favorite meal in Paris for many reasons, but hey it’s a memory we’re already laughing about.
Our goal was to make it to the Musee d’Orsay but decided we didn’t have time. Next time, right? We realized we never really took any pictures in front of the Eiffel so we headed that way to grab some pics in the rain. I think the exhaustion of day 4 had gotten to us, as I’m not sure we took but one serious picture. One man even said “what is that guy doing?” about Walker as he passed by. Ha. I think I’ll have to make another post with the ridiculous shots we got.
And then. AND THEN. The most beautiful alignment of traveling destiny happened. We met up with a seminary friend, D-Mac, who we hadn’t seen since he was in our wedding. He was there with his wife and some friends so the 6 of us headed to a restaurant to watch the French play in the World Cup. Happy July 4th to us!!!!
Just an inadequate picture to describe the masses gathered to watch the match on a big screen at Hotel du Ville. So much fun watching people line the streets with French flags and face paint. And a little intimidating to see cop after cop dressed in riot gear.
