Your cousin sounds like my sister. We ate at every Italian restaurant in Paris. One we actual ate at twice. One night we were looking at another Italian menu and I had to put my foot down. I told her that I would eat there but it would be the last Italian meal we would have. We ate at the French place across the street.

Okay. I'm aiming for later today, my next entry. Sorry for the delay, but I had to face unforeseen, expensive circumstances -_-

That's OK - gives me time to catch up (busy season as work).

Nice blog! I liked the pictures from Montparnasse, even if they weren't taken with the fancy setting. ;-)

I'm so glad Paris was everything you imagined. Look forward to more...

I'm so glad that you kept soldiering on in spite of your cousin.

Wow! Thanks so much for your latest entry. First, I was so glad to read that you replaced your boots. Then, I was wowed by your pictures of St. Denis and of Notre Dame. I’m glad you got to St. Denis. I loved seeing all those sarcophagi with the sculptures of the royalty buried within as well as the church itself.

Also, I had my first Cafe Gourmand at a cafe on the plaza in front of Saint Denis, which was a great treat: a little chocolate cake with a molten center and a little bowl of whipped cream, a little creme brulee, and a little tiramisu together with an espresso.

Thanks so much for reading!
Yes replacing those boots was the best decision of my life! And thanks for enjoying my pictures! Notre Dame and Saint Denis were absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad I went!
That dessert sounds delicious!

Love it! Your pictures are great, and I'm so glad you went to St.-Denis despite it being a "worker's area," whatever that means. The cousin sounds insufferable, but good for you for not letting it dampen your enthusiasm.

Thanks! Im glad you enjoyed it. I was always going to go to St. Denis haha and I loved it. I just found it funny that my dad asks me not to go right before I leave, and it ends up being really enjoyable.

I'm so sorry! I was in such a hurry to post this that I forgot to share some interesting anecdotes about New year's, like the drunken mess I encountered on the metro.
I think I'll include it in the next entry!

You bought your replacement boots early in the morning but didn't change into them until back at the hotel that afternoon? You actually carried "sweet relief" in the shopping bag while your feet still hurt?

I don't understand why you didn't wear them out of the shoe store and carry the bad boots?
But I'm glad you had such a wonderful, memorable visit!

I thought I satisfied my lust for Paris last summer for a couple of years but now you are making me want to go there again. Now!

...I don't understand why I didn't change them either. I don't know, I guess it never occurred to me, or maybe I enjoy pain?
I wasn't thinking obviously.

Haha! It is beautiful, I don't think I'll ever be satisfied of it!

That is funny about carrying the boots. It did not register when I ready the blog.

On our trip, our travel companion had to buy a pair of comfortable shoes because she had a stress fracture in her foot (from wearing sandals for 5 days of walking). The sales lady did not even ask if she wanted to wear them out. She just wrapped up her sandals.

Looking forward to you next installment.
