Gelato, Duck Confit, and Jazz

On Sunday, after Place des Vosges, we walked to Notre Dame. Jared got lots of great pictures of the flying buttresses and we enjoyed seeing all the beautiful stained glass windows. Then we walked across Pont St-Louis to Ile St-Louis, where we browsed the shops and had delicious gelato (cherry and lemon for Jared and chocolate and tiramisu for me). After that, we walked along the booksellers scattered along the Seine and headed back to our hotel to change for dinner. We ended up at Chez Clement at St. Michel, where Jared ate a few times while living in Paris. He had duck confit and I had sliced steak, yum! From there we went to Caveau de la Huchette, an awesome little jazz club in the Latin Quarter that was carved out of a cave. We had a great time listening to the live band play and watching the people there dance to the music – a perfect date. – Jessica


Pink Paris

Monday was a long day – we watched the sun set from on top of the Tour Eiffel (with a gorgeous pink sky), then Jared showed me where he attended classes with BU. We topped off the day with crepes de jambon et fromage (ham and cheese). We walked a total of 12.6 miles! It was awesome.
