In Paris, there are 20 arrondissements and we barely scratched the surface of even one. On our second day, I made a reservation at the only Michelin starred restaurant still open in August. All the other restaurants were boarded up for the summer holiday or were ridiculously expensive. I know that it's a once in a lifetime to eat at a French Michelin starred restaurant, but it doesn't have to be thousands of dollars. Do you know how many shoes and sweaters I could buy with that money? No thanks. I'll share more about our incredible meal in a future post.
Before our lunch reservations, we left our hotel a bit early so we'd be able to explore the 7th arrondissement. I honestly couldn't tell you how we got there, but we passed all these beautiful storefronts and buildings. We even came across the Assemblée Nationale and the Hotel Matignon, which I just found out is where the Prime Minister of France lives. It totally makes sense why all those people were staring at me strangely when we were taking photos. They must've been like, "Look at this strange person taking photos in front of the Prime Minister's house." What can I say? I can't pass up a pretty door, especially if it's a big, beautiful and blue!
