Biking Across Paris


This morning I met Mado, a friend from Couchsurfing.com, who showed me an amazing day in Paris. First we had lunch at Cafe de l'Industry where I tried Steak Tartare for the first time. It was slightly daring for me but I dove right in and enjoyed it. (Apologies to my vegetarian friends) Then we rented me a bike for 10 Euros and hit the streets of Paris. Let me tell you, it was wild to race between cars and speed through the crazy roundabouts. We hit different sights like Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville, and the Louvre before heading to Porte de Versailles to check out the Paris Expo for a bit. The expo was an odd faire that had everything from lowrider cars and skateparks to housewares and international foods.

After a long day of biking hard around the city, Mado treated me to a Moroccan iced mint tea, which completely hit the spot. I spent the rest of the evening viewing art at the Louvre. I'd missed the Richelieu wing last time I was here so I got caught up on my Rembrandts and Napoleon Apartments. Last time I was here, I found a less frequented bathroom in the Greek sculpture area. Always nice when you need "a moment". This time, I found one behind Louis XIII bedroom. It's kind of neat to pass through the rooms and furniture of French royalty on the way to my own "throne".

Pretty great day, but pretty exhausting, too. Night!
