Today was our very last day in Paris, we leave for the airport at 3:30 AM and will land in Portland at 5:15 PM! I can't wait to see my friends and family and eat Red Robin haha. Today Aaron and I went to the Eiffel Tower because the day that the class went I was really sick and Aaron had to nurse me back to health. It was really pretty, even though it was freezing outside. We had a nice Asian couple take our picture, there are a lot of Asians everywhere, and they love the peace sign. I wonder if they know how stereotypical that is? Oh well, they are nice people regardless.

Last night we went to this really cool fondu restaurant that Aaron had been to when he was in Paris a few years ago. It is a really small place with two long tables and writing all over the wall. It was a mad rush to get in, I felt like a herd of cattle or something. But we finally got to sit down and enjoy our amazing meat and cheese fondu! The best part about this restaurant is that they serve their wine out of baby bottles, apparently because France charges a tax on restaurants that serve wine in wine glasses. It allowed for some pretty funny pictures and great memories. We sat next to a big group of Brazilian students. I think that the restaurant is catered towards international students traveling in and out of Paris. Please take a look at my pictures, because they are great :) We have a US dollar that is now immortalized with our signatures on it tacked to the wall. If you're ever in Paris I would definitely recommend it, the restaurant is called Le Refuge des Fondus. 

This will be my very last blog entry until I arrive in Mexico City exactly 2 weeks from today! I am so excited to head to Mexico and begin my path to Spanish fluency. It will be a wonderful experience, I cannot wait to meet my host family and learn about ancient Oaxacan society and make new friends and memories!! Check back in the next few weeks for my new blog, Oaxaca 2010 :) I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read this, and I will see you in the next few days!
