la basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre, Paris
I've been in Paris the last few days for work and am leaving tomorrow.
I stayed downtown this time and it's been great riding the Metro to and from...pretending I was a little Parisian myself. By the way I took that picture above...and I had to climb many, many stairs to get inside. At least I had a chance to work off the bread I've been eating. No wonder people are thin over here!
I don't think I could ever grow tired of coming here. Although, I think this shall be the very last time I come alone. I would like to have a friend or my Mom in tow to tour the city and sit in a French cafe with. I've been here 4 times now and never with anyone to pal around with and I always feel weird about eating alone in a restaurant. And, honestly I am not complaining at all, it's been great to be able to come here as many times as I have. Most of the time I'd rather eat french bread (or croissants) along the way, anyhow.
To be honest, I don't even know what Paris would be like to have someone to share it with? I get secretly jealous of the groups of girlfriends I see or couples together. I don't think it would ever be possible to get Tim on a plane for 7+ hours. But...I know that I will take my daughter here for sure some day!
