A week in Paris pretty much ended up with me eating a ton of baguettes and cheese, drink a lot of espressos and have a croissant/pastry for breakfast every day. It is THE life. In july it’s a fair amount of tourists vs. parisians in the city, apparently almost everybody skip town in the month when everybody has vacation. I happened to be there on Bastille day, the french independence day. The plan was originally to watch the fireworks in the park with the eiffel tower in the foreground but due to an insane amount of people and a picnic with wine and cheese that didn’t happen. However we ran down to the river Seine instead where it’s actually a much better view. Fireworks was amazing.
