Paris: 2nd Update

September 20th, 2008 · No Comments

Bonjour!! It’s the end of our second day in Paris, and we’ve done quite a lot so far…
Kim and I spent the morning nursing our extremely crippling hangovers (thank you, picon bier) and finally finding comfort in some excellent lunch, all while browsing street markets and photographing some most excellent graffiti.
We visited the humongous (perhaps too humongous) Printemps department store, where our very good friend Olivier played a short set with his band Go Go Charleton. From there we strolled through the grounds of the Louvre, looked for the perfect Swatch watch (what’s a guy to do?), and made our way over to Colette. If their web site is any indication, you’d think Colette would be a design lover’s Mecca, but it turned out to be somewhat less than impressive, unfortunately- perhaps it was too crowded.
We finished the day with a wonderfully decadent dinner at Closerie des Lilas, a very romantic walk by Notre Dame at night, and a long walk (after several drinks) back to the hotel.
We are enjoying ourselves very much, saying “no” to very few things, and witnessing what must be some of the most beautiful people in the world.
Ex-patriotism, here I come!
Take care, Ryan & Kim
