Time for a little fashion!

. I had a fashion show scheduled for that afternoon at the Galaries Lafayette. I would be able to also look into a lot of boutiques while I was there. I had a lot of fun back on the Champs Elysees. I got a chance to go into the Disney store, where someone I knew had went and said the one in Paris is something to see. I also got a chance to go to Sephora Paris and buy some items there. I had to make it to the fashion district soon, so I decided to leave so that I can grab lunch by the fashion show. While in the fashion district, I went to some shops and boutiques. Two of them being Ed Hardy and Christian Louboutin. Very popular in the States, and I was happy to get to see their original shops in Paris. I finally made it to the Galaries Lafayette. I had seen it on the Travel Channel. I looked up and saw the multifloors and remembered it from Samantha Brown's travel show. I went up to the top floor and got lunch, which was a salad and some other things, along with some French water. Nice and full, I headed to the 4:00 fashion show,-feeling very appreciative, and trying to take it all in. : - )
What a perfect way to start the next day after an excursion in the Red Light District! Time to head to church. Well, actually the Notre Dame Cathedral! I remember passing it while on the River Seine in the Batobus, and wanted to make a special stop there. After a light breakfast at the hotel, I headed back into the railway and decided to take a picture by the tracks. Feeling really good for it being so early! : ) One thing that is interesting about riding the trains in another country is watching how other cultures interact. On my way into the center of the city, I noticed some French teenagers who were in regular hip hop street clothes and they were laughing and joking, and talking all kinds of slang-but in French! From what little French I do know, it seemed they were talking about a lady. Lol! I made my way to the Notre Dame stop and could see the tall cathedral in the background. Not only is it huge from the outside, but it seems even bigger inside. More fantastic paintings were inside and the stained glass windows were marvelous. After spending quite a bit of time at Notre Dame, I decided to take the train back to the Champs to look at some stores before heading to one of the many fashion districts in Paris
