ANNOUNCEMENT: I HAVE FOUND A NEW FAVOURITE TEA SHOP!!!
In which I describe my first two nights wandering throughout Paris, mostly in the XVIe and the Marais so far. Includes shoddy cell phone photos! :D
We hop into the car late on Friday evening. A dog, five humans, lots of bags. Another human and two dogs will be joining us the next day up north. We drive through a night punctuated by blurred yellow lights as we get further north, the radio set to the rock station I listened to in high school.
My sister and I step onto the bus, exiting the airport into a bright world with bleary eyes and exhaustion wrapped around us like cloaks.
We started walking near the Trocadéro, the Eiffel tower an uneasy metal clarion rising through a misty November sky.
