So, it’s been awhile

Wow, I have gotten lazy.  I apologize for the lack of blog, but hey, I’m in Paris. Can you blame me? Ok, so many things have happened, including an awesome weekend involving a beach very similar to my backyard back home.  But let’s start from the beginning.  Some time last week Jonas and I went to the Sacre Coeur of Montmartre.  It was fantastic, although there were so many stairs, and not until we were leaving did I find out that there was an elevator type deal that could take you from the street up to the Sacre Coeur, and with my handy dandy metro pass I didn’t even have to buy a ticket to ride it.

Definitely only posting this picture because I think it's beautiful, I'm pretty sure you can see clouds and sun anywhere.

Elevator type to get to the Sacre Coeur without working on your glutes.

After all of this was done we entered the fanciest McDonald’s I’ve ever been in…there was a piano on the second floor.  That’s right, and zebra print stools.  It was fairly intense.  We finished off the day in front of the Notre Damn which was fairly entertaining.  We were supposed to meet a classmate of mine, but I was having cell phone difficulties, so really all we did was stand around and watch people.  These people included some amazing performers, and some amusing performers.  I caught some footage and will definitely try to edit something together for your entertainment, cause it was pretty cool.  You know that even if your plans don’t work out, there’s always something to see because people perform everywhere trying to make a living.  Among the people in front of the Notre Damn was a fire dancer who had balls of fire on her hula hoop, a balancing act, some crazy lady dancing what I assume she thought was ballet, and some rollerbladers.

While I would love to continue, I must go.  But I will tell you about my amazing beach weekend and more once I have had a healthy meal and some decent sleep.

Au Revoir!

    The *elevator type deal* is a funicular, one of the most famous in the world.
