Day two in Paris! We wake up well rested, have our coffee and breakfast in the apartment before walking out on the dry streets. We have decided to do the most touristy thing there is to do, the jump on-and-off bus tour. I've always avoided these buses like the plague, but turned out I really enjoyed it (???).
Even though I've been in Paris plenty of times and I've seen all the monuments, it's a different thing to drive past them. You get a nice feeling for the size and vibe of the different areas of the city. Champs Élysées was by the way the name of my blog before. Is there anyone still hanging out on here since that time?
Since we're the cool kids, we took up the space all the way in the back. Mayan looking fab as always.
After jumping off at Notre Dam we walk up to Le Marais. We sit down on a sidewalk and stuff our faces with the famous falafel and Israeli beer from Rue de Roisers before moving to the park down the block. We lay in the sun for a while, eating the creamiest ice cream I've ever had and rest our touristy asses.
Nomnomnom. Chocolate noisette <3
After our cat nap in the park we decide to hit some shops. We walk around Marais, get mad at the sales assistant at Sandro who, I'm not kidding, said "if you buy this jacket you'll get a boyfriend" and thought it was a legit reason for getting a 300 EUR jacket. We restore our moods at COS, even though Mayan wanted to kill me for telling her it stands for Collection Of Style, thinking it sounds like the cheapest tackiest brand in the world.
After having been home to change and eat some cheese we walk over the Seine to the metro at Châtlet.
Thedi makes me and Mayan pose in front of the pink sunset, and thank god because look how cute we are!!!!
We take the metro to Republique where we eat dinner at a brasserie and later on move down to Canal St Martin. We walk along the water that lays completely still and past the drunk crowd that's taking up the docks. We make it to Chez Prune where we meet up with our friend Jay. We drink a beer and some very strong cocktails while catching up with him on what's been going on since we last saw him in New York. It makes me so happy knowing that wherever (almost) I go in the world, there's someone from school to text and have a beer with. At one point our glasses are empty and we can't keep our eyes open, so we jump into a cab and go back to St Germain and straight into bed.
Paris, you're amaze.
