Paris // Sunny Days
The sun has finally poked its head out for longer than an afternoon - we've had a few days of sunshine and 17 degree (Celcius) weather and I am feelin' as fresh as a newborn babe. Spending some time outdoors really makes me feel that way, always. I feel newly enchanted with Paris and my little life here.
I spent a few hours after class on Friday, sitting by the Seine with friends, shedding my winter layers and soaking up the sun and the buzzing, happy energy of a sunny day. We watched ducks poke about for bits of food in the water and various cruise boats float by. It was both peaceful and energizing, I felt great.
It's a busy weekend/week here, with lots of school work due this coming week. Which is a shame since we're supposed to have amazing weather aaalllll week. It's ok though, it'll make my walk home that much nicer. I'm still baffled by the fact that I pass by Notre Dame and Hotel de Ville every day on my route home. It's not even a detour, it's just the best way to go. Crazy!
