Paris Je t'aime

The last leg of my trip was in Paris where I stayed for two weeks. I felt like I took so many of those photos before so I slacked off quite a bit on the photo taking. Also my camera had an unfortunate accident at the zoo and the focus is all messed up.
I can safely say I spent most of my week eating Croque Monsieurs and walking a LOT. I also attended a Chromeo concert. I was soooooo excited to see them but I forgot to buy a ticket and it was sold out so I was really upset. Then on the day of the concert I found someone willing to sell me their ticket last minute so I got to go. Lead singer touched my hands and I went into fangirl mode (OMG I will never wash this hand).
I visited the famous Shakespeare and Company Bookstore which is known to have been a gathering place for Hemingway and other famous writers in the 1920s. There are actually two stores one which was opened in the 1920s but finally closed in the 1940's due to the German occupation of Paris, and the second which is the one that still stands today which was opened in 1951. I bought the classic "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" by Julia Child.
We also visited the famous Lovelock bridge at Pont des Arts and added a lock to the huge collection. It was recently reported that some part of the bridge has now collapsed due to the overwhelming amount of locks.
I had unreal amounts of fun in Paris, got to see old friends and meet some new ones but now I'm back to reality in good old Texas. Until my next adventure, I bid you all adieu.
