The first 24 hours in Paris have been a dream. This city is magical and too beautiful for words. I've wanted to come here for so long, I still can't believe I'm actually here. We live in the St. John's Paris Campus on rue de Sèvres in the 6e arrondissement, surrounded by patisseries and brasseries.
Our first dinner out was in a brasserie called L'Horizon. We ordered two onion soups, a steak in a pepper sauce and a bottle of Rose. Everything was fantastic and relatively inexpensive.
Charcuterie, tomatoes and cheese are from the Carrefour market (unfortunately La Maison du Fromage was closed for lunch). The bread and macarons are courtesy of the Malo boulangerie, two blocks down from our dorm.
So far Malo is my favorite place. Their bread and croissants are the best. And, the salesladies are very nice and patiently put up with my bad French...
Tonight, we're going to see the Tower!
