A short but fine adventure by Christoph

    The next day we didn't skip the french manners and had breakfast with baguette with camembert and other typical French cheese. With reloaded batteries we startet our sightseeing tour through Paris. The #1 on Micas and my ToDo-List was the Eiffel Tower, so we went there first, took a few pictures and then continued, because there was a massive crowd of people waiting for the elevator.

    We walked along the Seine towards Notre Dame and passed a lot of sights such as the Louvre and other mighty constructions. Unfortunately I can't remember all the french names but i still have the pictures in mind.

    At the end of the day we had some Champagner, the dinner at a restaurant and then got ready to check out Paris by night. I have never been to a 90's party, but at this very evening we decided to visit a club with a 90's party. It was an amazing party. People went crazy and we joined them. And I could not have been a coincidence that they turned on the lights in colors of the Mexican flag. They knew we were there :-D

    So thank's to Amélie, Julien and Mica for joining this trip!

    Thank's Amélie for being such a good host, I'll be back definitely. Paris was awesome!

    Since this is my first post on find penguins I have to mention that i have been to Mexico for half a year as an exchange student. Especially a lot of people from France have been there as well. Also one of my house mates - Amélie. So almost one year after we saw each other for the last time a few friends of our Mexican travel and housing group decided to have a little revival in Paris. It was simply awesome - especially if you are not a tourist but a guest! Obviously we did some touristic stuff as well, but still with a local person it is different in so many ways to explore a city than by a travel guide (doesn't matter if it's just a book or a person).

    Part of our Group: Julien who is also living in Paris and Mica who joined the weekend trip from London.

    We had an awesome start on Friday with a French dinner. Self-made Crepe and self-bought drinks gave us an insight of how the French are preparing dinner while having an apero preparing it. Before, when we were buying all the ingredients we passed a cultural center where people were dancing randomly to music in front of an artificial skull. This was one of the many advantages you have as a guest instead of a tourist ;-) We spent the night at Amélies place because everybody was a little bit tired from travelling to Paris.
