Beneath the Arc: July 25th, 2012
event: last night in France
outfit: dress: the limited; flats: BCBG Paris; necklace & earrings: borrowed from Laura
After our low-key day, we all met up with Pierre and Mathieu for a quick beer and dinner in Montmarte. We dined at Chartier (I still don’t understand how we skipped the line and got in. American girls apparently have such pull? If only I understood French), a restaurant that looks a bit train station- esque and serves traditional French fare. All very affordable (…not that we paid for it)—I’d recommend it if you’re visiting soon! Can’t say I liked fois gras, but I at least took a bite of everything. Most of us got steak & frites for our entree, though Andrea’s fish had to be carefully de-skinned/boned. And, of course, the cheeses were heavenly.
A hop, skip, and a metro ride away, our hosts introduced us to Duplex, a club in the tunnels beneath the arc de Triomphe. Drinking games & dancing followed. Another (at least) 4am night. I left for the airport (alone & via walking, metro, bus) at 8am. Gooood times.
Again: worth it. Paris, I miss you already.
