The Last of Paris







Today is our last day in Paris. We went to Versaille earlier. Louis XIV lived a good life. However, the Sun King could get a little advice from Walt Disney on how to effectively get people in and out of his kingdom. Rick Steeves advice of the day: go before 10:30 a.m. or don't bother. We're both excited to get on to our next adventure, but sad to leave this beautiful city. After buying 2-4 crepes a day, Ben decided to cut out the middle man and we have been living off his homemade ones the past few days..we think the crepe man whispered traitor today when we walked past his stand. By the time we get back to the States, everyone, even Ricky Bobby, will be saying they love his thin little pancakes, especially with Nutella...dang they're good.

If you're still in Cinque Terre, there is this cute resturant in Monteroso near the water under a bridge, there's only so many resturants there so it shouldnt be hard to find. You should stop in if you can - I got hit by a cork there and the waiter said that it meant I will have a happy love life, I think he was just trying to get out of a lawsuit. Love you guys, Mom says she loves you too
