I'd like to thank Michele Ferrero, the creator of Nutella!

We (finally) stopped at a crepe station on our way to the Eiffel Tower and boat tour. I got a nutella and banana was delicious!! It was really foggy outside and we couldn't even see the top of the Eiffel Tower so we decided not to climb to the top today. Hopefully the weather will be nice tomorrow so we can climb to the top! We took a boat tour which was really neat! We saw the Notre Dame from the water, along with museums and amazing buildings. It was freezing though!

We took a long walk to go to the Musee d'Orsay (an art museum), which we found out was not open on Mondays :( Oh well! One of the girls from UCF that is studying abroad, Shannon, lived in Paris for 3 years when she was little. We took the metro to her old neighborhood and saw her old apartment and the playground she used to play on with her brother. We went to this really cute cafe near her old neighborhood. I got a croissant and hot chocolate!! It was probably the BEST hot chocolate I've ever had! We went shopping afterwards...I got a few things from H&M (they have H&M's in the USA too) after a couple hours of shopping and walking we headed back to our apartment. We got dinner at a cafe right down the street from our apartment. I decided to be adventurous and get escargot. It was not the smartest decision I've ever made haha I'm glad I tried it, but I have no desire to order it again. It was a fun day! I think we're planning on making dinner in our apartment tomorrow's our last night in Paris. We're heading to Angers on Wednesday morning...
