Le rhume de Paris...

Now it at last happened to me too. The thing I've been waiting for ever since I got to Paris. Now I've caught a cold. Like everyone else here in Paris. Seriously, there's not a single person that I know over here that hasn't been/is at the moment sick. And people in the metro keep coughing and sneezing too. So it would have been a miracle if I hadn't become ill too. But at least now I have a good reason to stay in bed till noon, drink loads of tea and eat chocolate :P Yep, I've bought my first french chocolate. It's not bad... but still nothing compared to Fazer ;)

Yesterday we thought our lessons would finally start again. But no. Sorbonne is still closed *sigh* I have to say that I actually have had enough of this strike right now. I never thought I would actually miss studying!

Oops... the chocolate is already finito... And I bought it yesterday... Hmph. I don't like these packages with only 100g of chocolate...

Yesterday I also went looking for a new evening dress because my old one... well, that's just old. And I've worne it so many times already! So since there's a lot of shops over here that sell evening dresses somehing like four times cheaper than in Finland, I decided it was time to buy a new one. And amazingly enough, I found one almost directly! Yay :)

Some time ago me and Sophie also went to discover Notre Dame. I mean, we walk pass it several times a week, but this time we actually went to have a look inside and even attended a guided tour. And that was really interesting! The guide was very inspireing and told us a lot of stories about the church and details about its history. And I really mean a lot on information! Because the tour lasted for one and a half hours! But strangely enough, I didn't even noticed how the time passed by. She was just a very good guide. We were even allowed to enter the altar-area with her even though it's usually closed for public. So it was really worth it! :)

What else? Oh, I finally figured out what the dome I see from my window is. It's actually the clocktower of Gare de Lyon! *lol* I guess it was just too close and too easy. Didn't even search there because it seemed to be much further away... But well, now I've solved the mystery.

Vet du, på tal om choklad... Valrhona-kakao (d.v.s. het choklad) gör susen... Föreslår att du sveper dig i en filt hemma och släpar dig igenom stan o bänkar dig någonstans med kakao. Sen bara igenomlider du flunssan. Prosit, jag snorar nämligen också och tänker således trösta mig med bulla och kopiösa mängder kaffe.
