love.at.le.louvre.

September 3, 2011

yesterday my sister and i shopped all day while mom was at school. it’s super hot here in paris, september and 27 degrees yesterday. as much as i love the sun, it was too stuffy & humid outside, boo. along with all the new things that i got, i also got a sandals and shorts tan! eww. hah.

sunshine makes me happy. what makes YOU happy?

today it was 29 degrees. when we left the house it was super sunny! after shopping for a few hours, we went back outside and the sky was completely grey! a thunderstorm was headed our way, uh oh!! and the story goes like this. we were first looking for a place to have dinner and it was suddenly really windy. then the wind picked up even more and the leaves and everything on the ground started to fly towards us. our hair was flying all over the place, sort of “lion style” haha. then lighting flashed several times but i didn’t hear the thunder cause the wind was too strong. i think this was the strongest wind i’ve ever felt, i squinted and turned my face to the side cause the dust and stuff was being blown at me. it started to drizzle, then rain, and eventualy it was pouring. everyone on the street quickly retreated to the limited undercovered areas. so we quickly decided on a restaurant near by. when mom opened the door, she had a small cherry blossom or flower stuck in her ponytail, lols! we were seated and began to dry off after 5 minutes. a few minutes later, it was pouring outside. a couple rushed to the door to seek cover from the rain. they stood outside for a few minutes and then decided to come into the restaurant. they were completely DRENCHED from neck to toe, from their necks down because they had worn helmets because they were on a moped/scooter/bike.

anyhoooo! this is my last update in paris cause my sister & i are headed back home to vancouver tomorrow morning.
here are some pictures from yesterday and the day before. enjoy!

yesterday.
our landlady took us on a mini tour around the touristy places. here are some pictures that i successfully managed to take while in the car. we stopped by the notre dame cathedral to take some pictures.


 

1. hi! i’m a gargoyle
2. mom said we shouldn’t go there cause it’s unsafe, so we do the opposite hah, we’re wayyy down at the bottom
3&4. the notre dame cathedral looks pretty much the same since i was there last, except there are now new fences around the building
5. musée du louvre
6. paris night time, love ittt

today.
went back to one of my favourite places, the open market! bought a couple of types of caviar from this store to use for my tea party when im back in vancouver.
mom also bought me a silver three tier stand and a very pretty glass cake stand. i can’t wait to use them that day!

petite déjeuner with mom &kat. before leavingthe house, i had strawberries, a fig, a chocolate tarlette & a puff pastry with apricots. huge breakfast can you say? lols. parisians eat desserts for breakfast, &so do i; i guess i fit in pretty well here! chocolate croissants anybody?:)
1. what mom sees.
2. what i see.
3.  what everybody sees.

we did some major damage at fnac, just by buying cookbooks and recipe/dessert books!! faints*

bought a lot of things for mom’s new home. everyone was super tired, so we decided to fix dinner at home for the first time.
my sister &i went to the open market to pick up a baguette & a hot rotisserie chicken.
i would say that they constantly have 30 chickens on huge metal skewers along the wall roasting away AND! they are constantly being bought and new ones are being thrown on.

these past few days i’ve eaten soo much & so many diferent types of…
1. cheese; i feel like a spoiled mouse!
2. desserts & sweets; i feel like a sugar addict.

the coffee in paris is a gazillion times better than what we have in vancouver. i love it.

je suis très fatigue, bonne nuit~
