#flashbackfriday – Paris Notebook
October 4, 2001 – First night in Paris. According to my notes, we had been travelling for 24 hours by the time we got into our hotel room. E promptly falls asleep on the bed. But I’m in Paris for the first time ever. I want to go out and explore! But I don’t want to do it alone. I rest for a bit, too, quite possibly cursing him silently while I do. I think it was close to ten pm when he finally woke up. But he was ready to go out! And that was the first time I saw the Eiffel Tower. It was all lit up and it was magic. I still remember feeling so overwhelmed by its beauty that I thought I was going to cry.
