Evening Walk

I've been staying near the Arc de Triomphe and last night I wandered out alone to hunt for some food and take in the pleasant evening weather. I forget how cool it is to walk the Parisian streets at night. It's like a movie set with tall, historical buildings lining every rue. I'd walked for a while when I caught a glance at the Eiffel Tour with its duel spotlight rotating across the moonlit sky. I decided to head towards it, to say bon soir.

When I arrived the streets were somewhat full with tourists. I walked to a couple of food stands until I settled on the least crowded and ordered a ham and cheese panini. Every meal I have on my trips is delicious after all of the walking I do. I try not to waste any of it (earlier in the day I was eating crumbs off of my pants). I munched on my sandwich while sitting at the steps of the Trocadero. Like Cuba, Paris is for lovers. I enjoy seeing all of the couples on trips together in Paris, totally swept away by the sight of the Eiffel Tower. Once an hour at night, people cheer and kiss when hundreds of lights start to sparkle all over it. I started to think that maybe the tower is the only thing prettier than the girls here. On my walk back, I snacked on a crepe with Nutella for dessert. Not a bad night in Paris.

I'm going to try to meet up with some couch surfers in Paris before I leave for London on Friday. It'll be nice to meet some new people and chat about the city.
