I've been in Paris for a month!! I still love it :) The days have yet to become monotonous. I still get a thrill out of riding the metro and seeing the same accordion player 3 separate times in the same week.
So, what little adventures have I had?
-I went to the Louvre twice this week- Once with my art history class and once on my own.
-Maddie and I made Valentines for everyone like we were back in elementary school
-I got to see Arthur, my foreign exchange student, who I hadn't seen in 4.5 years- See two posts ago for the heart warming story
-I ate some crazy wicked mustard
|Cute little valentines! All included inspirational messages written on the back by me. And you know how I give good advice|
|I'm in front of the Pei entrance!!|

On our way, we did happen upon a room the contains some very famous paintings, including Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People and Géricault's The Raft of the Medusa (a personal favorite of mine, it's a huge painting. It was at least 10x12 feet, not inches). I had a little bit of a 'wow' moment. I know everyone says it, but they really are so different in real life and it is extra cool to experience them in person. Pictures really cannot do them justice

Lots of Love,
