Today was my first full day in Paris! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY~
Anyways, the first thing we did was go and see Notre Dame. I could bore you with all
the stuff I learned about it, but I don't really remember that much of it, so...
Then I had my first crepe! Crepes are sooooo good! I had a sugar one, and I swear, it
was the best thing in the world! I now have a new favorite food...
Then we went to the Louvre. We killed like, four hours in there. And it wasn't
completely packed, either. I saw the Mona Lisa, and it looks a LOT smaller in person
than it seems to be in all the pictures of it that you always see. And, totally funny
random fact, did you know that the Louvre has the most Da Vinci's that are in one
museum? They only have five. And I saw the Venus di Milo, and another sculpture
called Victory something, but it was a lady standing on the front of a boat. I saw
more Egyptian stuff, and a lot of Babylonian things too. Like I saw one of the
original stones that were inscribed with the Code of Hammurabi, which was the first
set if written rules in the world. They were written in cuniform, and that's where
the "an eye for an eye" and "a tooth for a tooth" came from. Pretty cool, huh?
Then we went and saw the Eiffel Tower. It was getting dark, though, so we didn't
climb it, but we took lots of pictures (it was blue!) and we somehow killed an hour
there. My parents were freaking out when we were trying to leave it though because
they thought that the bus we were going to take to a certain metro stop was going to
go the wrong way, so I showed them this other one going in the opposite direction.
They thought that this one was wrong too, until we got on "just to see" and ended up
riding it all the way to the stop. My mom claims that my dad has to come up with the
idea himself before he'll belive it, even if I was the one who said it first and I
end up being right.
But anyways, it was a great day, the best Thanksgiving day that I've ever had. I
can't wait for tomorrow...
