Today is my last day here and I have to say I am a little sad...I think Paris is a little sad too as the weather is very grey, quite cold and overcast!!
I have had such a wonderful time and really enjoyed the city and all it has to offer...I didn't get to see everything on my list so I guess it is a good reason to come back again next year.
I figure it must be time to come home when
...the people around you who are speaking french no longer sound strange
...it seems normal to be jumping on the metro and changing platforms to get yourself around
...bonjour and au revoir seem like the only way to be polite
and an espresso and a croissant is what you want for breakfast!!!
I decided to order a shuttle to pick me up and take me to the airport as I was told a taxi may not arrive and the train takes a long time...so now I await my charriot to deliver me to Charles De Gaulle airport for the L o n g journey home!
I just brewed my last coffee and walked to the boulaingerie to get my last "real" french croissant (for now anyway) and climbed UP those 5 flights of stairs for the last time!!!
So many wonderful memories to take home with me and many more hours of learning about the treasures I will seek out on my next visit.
