long weekend in paris

April 5, 2008

last weekend i met my sister in paris, one of my very favorite european cities. : ) we had lots of fun – eating (incredibly delicious) macaroons, sightseeing, and doing a little shopping. we got to see some of the usuals – the eiffel tower, place des voges, and notre dame, plus some new places for me – marché ste. catherine, the rodin musuem, and ste. chapelle (all highly recommended). we took a day trip out to versailles, which was great, but unfortunately it was raining too hard that day for us to be able to explore the gardens. jen and i also got to have dinner with my friend aurélie (who i studied with in the netherlands in 2005) and her husband jerome. it was really fun to spend some time hanging out with them and to see their apartment in paris. : ) here are some favorite photos from our trip:
