Bon Jour

Paris at night is breathtaking.
This is the River Seine with the tip of the Eiffel Tower sticking up in the background.

University of Paris II Pantheon-Assas
My friend who lives in Paris is attending law school here. Although she is already
licensed to practice in two states, she is an incredible over-achiever who
is fluent in French and wanted the license to handle French legal matters.

I have been here less than 12 hours and we have already walked everywhere. Fortunately, the weather is not as bad as it looks so the brisk walks through this timeless city have been awe-inspiring. There are so many options for activities tomorrow, including roller-blading through the city (many streets are shut down every Friday night for the thousands of bike-riders and rollerbladers who hit the streets en masse), heading up to Sacre Coeuer if the weather is good for aerial shots of the city or a relaxing stroll to the Eiffel Tower.

Random fact - every year during this time, the government requires all businesses to put their goods on sale, so this is the ideal time for shopping in Paris if I am so inclined.

Bon jour, bon soir, bon nuit, s'il vous plaît, and I can count from 1-5. That pretty much exhausts my knowledge of French. Peace out.

Violating Bill O'Lielly's boycott of France? Tsk-tsk.
