Today kicked off with me saying goodbye to my host family for a couple of days to start our Paris trip. We were dropped off at Colmar’s train station. As we waited for the train, we visited the convenience store to buy snacks and looked at French coloring books. We were all ecstatic to arrive in Paris. After our arrival we walked and then took a subway to the hotel to drop off our bags.
First, we walked to the Louvre. We explored the museum and got to see the famous Mona Lisa. Next, we walked through gift shops and chocolatiers. Lastly, we made our way to get something to eat. On our way we got a great glimpse of Notre Dame and the top half of the Eiffel Tower. After a great meal and dessert we made our way back to the hotel and ended our day with a spectacular view of the lighting up of the Eiffel Tower.
