I don't know why I waited so long to tell all of you this but I'm going to be visiting Paris this April! My mother informed me of this a few months ago and I started crying, I was so happy. I have been dreaming about going to Paris for practically my entire life. Even though I have never been there, I have vicariously expierenced the city and the culture through music, food, movies, and photographs. I have dreamed about living in a Parisian apartment overlooking the city and buying baguettes from bakeries and fresh fruit from street markets. I have longed to walk the famous cobblestone paths, visit art musuems, and document my life in film. One day, I hope to be fluent in French and be able to live and work there. Paris, comment je vous adore!
If any of you have ever been to this gorgeous city, I would love to hear the highlights of your trip or places I must visit (aside from the main tourist attractions, that's obvious). Although I am only going for a short while, I want to expierence the esoteric and clandestine nooks in order to find the root of Parisian culture. April, why must you be so far away?
