paris recap

paris was wonderful, such a great way to spend the weekend! our hostel was disgusting, the weather was foul, and everything was nonetheless absolutely beautiful. we did lots of touristy things but it was so nice to get to know the bucknell group better and just do a little traveling independent from the excursions we'll be taking as part of our program.
outside the louvre... i can't get over how much i love this building
generic tourist picture of la tour eiffel
me, valerie, allison, denise, annie in front of the eiffel tower.
view of the sacre coeur from the top of the arc de triomphe... not raining at this point!
slightly ominous view of the eiffel tower from the same perch.
arc de triomphe... look hard for the little ants on the top of the building, that was us!
ferris wheel at place de la concorde... amazing view of the city all lit up, minus the sheets of rain coming at us the whole time.
yummy yummy dinner on the champs elysées (allison, valerie, denise, annie, me.)
not-quite-worth-the-897892349-steps view from the pouring rain at the sacre coeur.
pretty even in the rain.
the love wall.
view from "the perfect hostel"... yes, this was truly the name and no, it was not perfect.
