Paree in the Spring

We left Metz after an early morning walk around the town, taking photos of the super-cool cathedrals. Then we hit the freeway, and about a billion tolls, every three seconds. Ten euro here, and then three more a few kms down the road, and then more. And more. Retarded.

But then, after breakfast in a french truck stop, we hit Paris. We found our hotel easily, amazingly. It's nice. Called the Hotel California, it's located in the Latin Quarter, down the street from Sorbonne University, home of multiple and frequent student protests/riots. Good times.

After checking in, and chilling out, we took a boat trip down the Seine to the Eiffel Tower. The lineups were long, but it was well worth it. We had a clear day -- much clearer than last trip -- and we took a billion and a half photos. (They'll be posted soon, if you're bored.)

We took the boat back to our end of town, and had shitty pasta for dinner -- crappy food in Paris, now that is a shame...
