What a month it has been! This is the month in which all my other friends who are studying abroad decided to visit me. All the visiting of me in Paris is done until my parents arrive during Thanksgiving week near the end of November. Two different weekends were full to the brim with two different friends visiting me, both of whom, hilariously enough, are currently studying abroad in Spain! Together we did all the usual tourist stuff, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Montmartre, etc. etc. etc. I have to admit the big-ticket places in Paris are starting to get a little old for me, but seeing my friend’s joy at seeing them for the first time was worth going again.

Despite having been in Paris for almost two full months now, I’m still continually finding things I never saw before in the city. It’s fantastic and is keeping me from getting too bored or too annoyed at the increased traveler density on the metro everyday (I’m not kidding it’s doubled at least). It’s hard to wrap my head around the idea that I’m already half way done with my time here. It feels like just yesterday I was getting lost in a foreign, unknown place (no wait… that was yesterday. After two months, it still happens). But I can’t wait to keep exploring! Allons-y!
