A Sunday afternoon walk around the Saint Germain des Prés area led me to colorful candy shops, used book sales, and group of people giving free hugs (calins gratuits en français) outside of Notre Dame. Quelle bonne idée!
I'm fortunate enough to be in Paris for the next two months on a study abroad program, and I'm currently trying to explore the city, visit museums, improve my French and, of course, eat as many pâtisseries as possible!
Here are some photos from the famous Cimetière du Père-Lachaise, where a number of famous people are buried - including Balzac, Moliere, and Jim Morrison. It's a hauntingly beautiful place.
