dirty boots / cute doggies / laudree / palais de tokyo / eiffel tower / metro / cards
I don't think I've ever walked so far in all my life. On Wednesday we walked from our hotel, to the Pompidou Centre, to the Notre Dame, to the Louvre, to the Eiffel Tower. Thank goodness we ended up getting the Metro back or I'd have collapsed. It's a shame we only ended up eating rubbish the whole time as well, but everything else was so expensive!
The hotel we stayed in was strictly no alcohol allowed, but do you really think a bunch of 30 students listened? There were a couple of close calls, but we got away with it. I dread to think of the looks on their faces when they checked the rooms after we left! I suppose that's what you get when you say we can't use the elevators even though we paid the same as everyone else did..
I didn't get to go into the Louvre or see the Moulin Rouge which I'm upset about, but I definitely want to go again anyway. There just isn't enough time to visit everything you want to in one day! Regardless I think we did pretty well doing all of that, considering all the beggars and charity workers we had to fight off! That's not to sound mean but one of the charity people shouted at my friend because he only had change left. Seriously!
Has anyone else been to the Palais de Tokyo? Is it just me or was it just the biggest pile of rubbish you've ever seen? The whole of the outside smelled like crap too. Maybe it was ~symbolic~ ? Sorry but I just cannot stand all of that pretentious art rubbish! As if a shed actually means anything artsy, it doesn't. The best part of the whole exhibition was the shop. I really wanted that Anna Sui book! Not sure I'll ever spend anything close to €50 on one book though.
I got stopped in the street by three (I think?) girls who asked for my photo, if by chance you ever come across my blog please let me know! I'm sorry I couldn't stop to chat!
