... just being in the city and admiring the architecture of the day. While sight-seeing it POURED - we walked around Paris for four hours in the rain and got absolutely SOAKED!

... friends I've managed to make here are not French, or if they are French, they're not from Paris originally. Jerome, from Paris originally, showed his complete psychopathic tendencies way too early in the piece. My friend who I met in Lisbon, Mathilde, has managed to be 'busy' for the entire month, and my old flat-mate has not answered my messages, and the girl I met from Paris in Rome, has done the same.
