Wednesday, my friends Meagan and Nicole were going to the Seine river and Shakespeare and Co. book store, so I decided to tag along. It was a really cool little store, PACKED with all different types of books. We had a ball looking through all of their selections and at the different old books.
After our tour de english books, we wandered through the back streets near Notre Dame and saw some cute little Salon de The boutiques and found the BEST gelato place EVER. They made their ice cream cones look like artwork!

We also passed through the park that holds the oldest tree in Paris (maybe the world?), which was planted in 1602!!

Thursday I went with Nicole, Janna, and Jennifer to see the monument where the Bastille used to be. We thought there would be a museum or something else of interest near the monument, but we were wrong! We did get to see a beautiful park next to the Seine river and we also found our favorite Patiserie in all of Paris!
