January 31, 2006
Paris is bright and frosty, which I very much like – although I'm not good at being cold, the sunshine is cheering! On friday at Disneyland, however, it was not sunny, it was grey; it actually snowed! We must have been mad to go there. We did have an excellent day, though; we managed to do all the 'indoors'-type things, including Peter Pan's flight and the haunted house, and in the studios the shows 'cinémagique' and 'animagique', which were worth it just to sit in the warm!
On Saturday I went to meet Josh and Noura in Montmartre, as they were in Paris for the weekend. We had coffee in a little café, then went to see the Sacre Coeur. After that we had lunch in a little Pizzeria (including BIG ice creams – yum!) and Miguel came to meet us to show us all the little windy streets and shops of Montmartre, after which we all sat back in the little café for more drinks, and Noura and I went off to shop in a pretty beauty shop across the road, leaving the boys to chat!
In the evening I ran into Elena who invited me for pancakes with her, Paz and Paz's friend from Chile who is visiting. We had both savoury and sweet pancakes, and ate far too much!
On Sunday I had a lazy day chez moi, doing all the laundry, work, washing up etc that I had to do, and in the evening I went to meet Neil, Miriam, Sam and Sally and we went (via KFC) to a pub quiz in an English pub in the marais called the 'Frog and Rosbif'! I don't know if we won, although I doubt it considering the amount of guessing we were doing, as I had to leave when the marking started to get the train. I did drink beer, however, for the first time ever! It was actually ok…
Work yesterday was pretty much a waste of time, as I only had one student turn up, but I got to leave early and I went to the supermarket to buy lots of nice things on the way home :)
Other news that I forgot to mention last time I blogged (is that really a verb, now?) – Antony and I have booked a holiday! We are going to Tunisia for a week at the end of April, to a hotel right on the beach, with everything included :) I am so excited!! Apparently the weather should be warm but not horribly hot, and we'll get to swim and sunbathe and eat well and relax for a whole week in the sun. Yay!
Nothing else exciting to impart – I'll be back in London on Saturday afternoon for a few days, then on up to visit Antony on Tuesday, then back to London the follwing Monday until Thursday.
PS. I didn't like the film of Superstar – dad was right!
