Posting this even though it’ll be somewhat disjointed.
Blair was going to France with her boyfriend and 3 of their friends from LA. We had been thinking of going to Paris as well, so we decided to overlap some of the dates.
Dave and I went to London on May 31. We spent 3 days wandering the streets of London, eating pub food, goat cheese, and sightseeing. Even though I’d been to many of the places before, we went to the Houses of Parliament and saw Big Ben, saw the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, walked along the river, went to Abbey Road and Denmark Street, and had dinner with my family friend Lawrence and his wife.
Afterward, we took the EuroStar to Paris. We spent the first night walking around the Louvre (which is amazing at night). Then the next day, we tried to go to the Musee D’orsay, but the line was so long we gave up and just went for a long walk and lunch. Then, Blair and Dave and I went to the Eiffel Tower. Blair decided not to go up with us, so we went up alone. Turns out she knew something I didn’t – Dave asked me to marry him!!
When we came down, Blair was waiting to take us out for a celebratory drink. We sat in the shade of the tower at the [??] museum and drank lovely juices (since none of us really likes champagne :).
Later, we went to Notre Dame and spent the rest of the day there.
