So I was surprised and astounded that Paris was what I'd pictured. There was an energy in the summer nights and hot days, and the buildings, parks, churches, and markets were simply beautiful. Even the Parisiens were kind to us American tourists.
And the food. I can't stress enough about how much I loved the food. Everything I tried was superb, and I wasn't going to any fancy restaurants and patisseries.

This was by far one of my favorite things I've seen in Paris. Actually, it may be one of the most beautiful things I've seen in the world. This is the Sainte-Chapelle, a chapel within the Palais de la Cite. Even under construction, the stained glass was stunning.

|Then we found another church! But the line to get in was insane.|
|Bite-size appetizers I did not order. I remember it was delicious, but that is all.|

Bon nuit Paris!
