A cote du Pompidou. Close to the Pompidou, my favorite art museum in Paris.
My frist meal in Paris.
Coming to Paris completely alone is both exhilarating and isolating.
I am fiercely indépendant and savor my moments alone, but Paris is a city you want to experience with others. It's complex and beautiful; I've been walking aimlessly many times through the streets of the different arrondissements and just come across an amazingly beautiful church, a quite park, or some famous landmark that I didn't know was there...it's nice to experience that giddiness with someone. I know that not many people get to (or want to) spend time in Paris alone, so I think I've got a bit of a different perspective. My first days in France were spent alone, then I was with others almost 24/7 for months, then I got snowed in to Charles De Gaulle Airport for a week on my way out...so I left alone too. More on this story in later posts. There are many things to show you in between!
