I'm actually posting! The only problem is I was too lazy to edit these (read: use "sharpen" tool after resizing) and make them nice because there were so many. Watch out, these are monstrous. And there aren't any people pictures because that's creepy. If you really want to see them, they are on Facebook. I shall link in my personal journal to those albums. :)
I miss speaking French.


Spain won the Euro Cup :)

Look how arty I am with my black and white. Just kidding. I was really bored. This is Notre-Dame.

Now we're in the Louvre. Don't get lost in the Louvre. It's a bad place to be lost in. Although, I did get to sprint past a lot of artwork.

Me and XIV. That's my special nickname for him. Another nickname is "Fat Louie", which happens to be the name of the cat from The Princess Diaries. Not like I knew that.

The Louvre

Sacre-Coeur from a ferris wheel

The Seine

L'Arc du Triomphe

From the top of the Arc.

I refuse to label this

Statues outside the Musée d'Orsay. They're supposed to represent each continent or something.

The Musée d'Orsay. It used to be a train station, you know.

The St. Michel fountain in the Latin Quarter.


Inside the Concierge, which was one of my favorite places. There was a French Revolution museum!!!!

Statue inside the Pantheon, which may have been my favorite place.


And I loled when I learned Voltaire was encrypted across the hall from Rousseau. Hahaha. I also love Rousseau.

Then we took a boat ride on the Seine.

Here is Versailles' psychedelic wallpaper. I took about 300 more pictures here (I wish I was kidding). I'm not sure why because all the rooms looked like this, but with less LSD.

The Hall of Mirrors.

Okay, the gardens were pretty. I'll give you that, Louis XIV.

There were also halls of statues, which I found very entertaining.

More gardens. That's actually a statue of me, btw.

The obelisk at the Place de la Concorde. Aka where they had the guillotine. HARDCORE


Les invalides. Where Napoleon is... entombed.

The day before we left, Ingrid Betancourt was freed and everyone in France was super happy. We all pretended we knew who she was before that day.

Paris is so lovely. I was there last year, every building looks so beautiful there!

I absolutely adore that picture of the sunset, wow... gorgeous.

Have you been inside the Sacre-Coeur? I nearly started to believe in God when I went in.
