À Paris

My last day in France! After little over a week in the wonderful house in Saint Jean d’Angely and with small day trips to La Rochelle, Bordeaux, and Saintes, I said goodbye to Jessica, Malte, and Linnea yesterday afternoon and took the TGV up to Paris to visit my Moldovan friend Valeriu. I haven’t been to Paris for four years, which is probably the longest gap ever for me since I was a teenager, so one day here was of course too short. But I made the most of it, and walked around half the city today, through at least eight of Paris’ twenty arrondissements! Tomorrow morning, I will carry my suitcase up and down the many stairs in Paris’ old metro system and take the RER out to Charles de Gaulle from where I will fly back to Stockholm. I am not really ready to leave, but I know that I still have a lot to look forward to this summer, including seeing many of my closest, whom I haven’t seen for over a year. Still, if. I stay up a little longer, perhaps I can prolong my stay here…

Here is the view from Valeriu’s balcony. (Hope you can see le Tour Eiffel behind the roof of the big building!) More photos to come as soon as I get back home to my MacBook Pro!
