Le Louvre, Palais Royal, Les Halles

-started the day by waking up at 3am -_-
-sat in bed, read a book, took a shower, kept Joy up and twiddled my thumbs till 6am
-went outside to walk around & enjoy the Parisian atmosphere so Joy could sleep
-what would a day in Paris be without stopping by a Patisserie for breakfast?
-ate some baguettes, croissants, and sipped coffee. dang I'm so French :p
-went to a supermarket to buy some food for future meals. How is it that 6 giant baguettes cost me $1.50, but 4 slices of ham cost $7??
-stopped by the outdoor markets


-headed off to the Louvre without Joy. We agreed to meet up at 1pm infront of the Mona Lisa since someone's a lazy bum :p

-walked around Les Halles a bit

-accidentally found the Palais Royal & this cool lookin' fountain
-got lost and somehow ended up at the Opera Garnier....again... (that's 3 times so far for those counting...)

-found this funny statue thing but couldnt take a picture with it cause no one was around to help me :(

-went back later with Joy & Elyse to get pictures :D (hmm these remind me of King Kong... o_0)

-finally found it!!! [cue angelic music] Joy couldn't figure out where the Louvre was when she was inside the actual Louvre *face. palm.*
