This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

shopping day.

day 11 was dedicated to shopping. so there's a shortage of photos for this day. i hit about 5 vintage shops, several boutiques, market stands and a few chain stores while T waited outside in the streets most of the time. and after much hunting, there was very little buying. still i did obtain a pair of leather boots and a pleated skirt for 15 euro from a vintage shop. we grabbed some panini's for lunch and by late afternoon we had to head back to the hotel to drop off things and rest our feet for an hour before heading out for dinner.

our hotel was across the street from le centre pompidou, noted as one of the most daring modern art museums in the world.

for dinner we went to eat at one of the many japanese restaurants in the area, and lucky for us it was very good. after dinner we decided to head back out to the eiffel tower.. of course by 9pm it still wasn't very dark outside, but the lights on the tower were lit.

we passed by the Hôtel de Ville on the way back to our hotel.. which looks nice during the day.. but 10x better at night.

and if i still need to remind you.. there's always more on flickr.
