paris at night

Paris is a city made for the night, and it doesn't let down. All of the amazing buildings around town are lit to make them even more stunning.

We were also able to meet up with quite a few friends while we were there. Maggie knew someone from USC who was living in Paris with her French husband and we met up with them and their friends a few times, and also spent some fun nights out with our friends from Albuquerque.

The Louvre at dusk.

Andrew battling Pokemon in the most epic of locations.

Dinner on the river with Maggie's friend and her husband's French buddies.

Us finally doing some karaoke.

Montmarte at night.

The Sacré-Cœur at the top of Montmarte.

Us with the Albuquerque friends outside our neighborhood bar, Le Galway Pub.

Notre Dame at night.

What happens when you drop your keys in the Seine--this guy actually got in the water to fish his keys out.

After six weeks in Paris, it was finally time for us to go. We were sad, but we had had a go with the town, and we were ready to move on.

Our last night there we ate on the bridge that used to be covered in padlocks to symbolize the locking of people's love. The locks are now gone because they were afraid that their combined weight might collapse the bridge.

Leaving our hood for the last time.


  1. Oh! A place I've actually been - the Louvre. But I missed out on Montmartre. The near misses are almost worse than the places you never got to go, aren't they? Because you were soooo close.
