Paris Places

Unfortunately I’m sick- some combination of outrageous hours of dance practice in preparation for our show and protests outside in the cold have done me in.  I’ve skipped my classes today and gone to Yale Health twice for a sore throat, lung pain, cough, aching joints, fatigue, and pounding headache. Verdict? I don’t have the flu!

Which is excellent because I need to be able to go to class and practice.  But it doesn’t actually make me feel any less sick.

So I’m being lazy and only uploading the list of places my parents and I put together before visiting Paris, a list of the places we wanted to see.  As I cuddle the radiator in my dorm, wearing pajamas and Caron’s Parfum Sacre for its imagined medicinal properties, Paris in the summer (+ health) seems particularly dreamy.

If you’re going to Paris, maybe some of these will make it onto your itinerary. If you’ve already been, what am I missing? (Unfortunately, quite a bit- this doesn’t include the things we stumbled on completely at random, which were, of course, the best discoveries).
