Last Day in Paris

It is currently 12:30 am, music is raging outside in the streets and we have to wake up in 4 1/2 hours to catch a taxi to the train station. Hmm. Should I bother going to sleep, umm yes, I'll take what I can get. Today was a fabulous end to our time here in Paris, we went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, climbed the cajillion stairs to the top of Arc de Triomphe, walked half way down the Champs-Elysee, I had an amazing croque madame with unbelievable dijon mustard, had my portrait drawn in Montmartre(I now look Asian, or one eye is higher than another), saw Moulin Rouge, found and amazing bakery on the C-E with awesome pastries, navigated through the streets of Monmartre while everyone was celebrating the first day of Summer, and tried escargot for dinner (It tastes like garlic and butter with a little seafood taste, kinda the consistancy of a bad crawfish). Here are some pictures!
Bed now, I have 4 hours, and music is still going, yeah!! Provence here we come, can't wait for the lavendar fields!
PS tomorrow's breakfast consists of leftover pastries that I haven't been able to eat yet!! Pain au chocolate, 1/2 mini caramel macaroon, 1/2 chocolate eclair, and some chocolate cake rectangle that looks yummy. Paris and I have become good friends!
