PARIS: The Day After...
LE JOUR D'APRÈS...
It's a quiet day. No one feels like stepping out of the apartment, though if it was just me, I would still head out and go about my touristy business. But...Xavier is hearing none of that. And Alexus is looking at me with huge eyes clearly conveying "you're crazy". I'm thinking, come on guys, what happened to all that "Fuck the terrorists" talk from last night?
So we head to our croissant and coffee spot, Exki and sit there for a bit.
The next day, we leave for the airport at 8:30am, and it takes almost 2 hours to get there (should have taken 30 minutes!). The RER to the airport is closed for construction - yeah right, construction! So we're detoured and shuttled around and get to CDG super late and worried because in our minds the airport must be jam-packed with people and extra security. Nope - there wasn't, it was smooth sailing.
So that's it for my weekend trip to Paris - still love this city and would go back in a heartbeat!
Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité
Very empty for a Saturday in Paris
There's a few people out and about - life doesn't stop....
Paroisse Notre-Dame de la Gare
I guess is makes sense for a flower shop to be open on this day of mourning
In front of the BnF
We're not completely alone
Debating a walk over the river to Bercy Park...
No shopping for us today
Cute window, with a simple sign - "HOME"
A lot of locked doors today
Still in the 13e, beginning to see more and more places open
Grocery stores are open...
Sachets of Fleur de Sel
Home made jams
Deli places are open too
People gotta eat!
Metro is running, but pretty empty
