This weekend my friend from back at school who is studying abroad in Brussels right now came to visit Paris! I love having visitors because a. I get to see people that I’ve missed and b. it motivates me to cram as many activities into one day as possible, making the most out of my weekends. Today we decided to start the morning off with going to the Rodin Museum, which I have been meaning to do for awhile now. The museum offers free admission every first Sunday of the month so that was a nice bonus in addition to being wowed by the gardens and sculptures.
We left the museum and were beginning to get super hungry so Josie and I thought Andrew totally deserved to try one of the amazing falafels in the Marais. This marked my third time going to L’as Du Falafel (at 34 rue de Rosiers off the Saint-Paul metro stop) because I can’t get over how much flavor and food you can get in one helping. The falafels are 5 euros each, which I thought was kind of pricy in comparison to Mamoun’s $2.50 falafels in NY, but they are huge and even come with eggplant!! Sunday is probably the worst day to go since the Marais is swarmed with people as the rest of Paris is shut down and the line can become exhaustingly long. If you go sometime in the middle of the week you can avoid a line altogether and march straight up to the counter to make your order.
We scarfed down our food and decided to walk it off by doing some window shopping. Some of the boutiques in the Marais really make me regret having an unpaid internship this summer instead of making some sort of cash. We capped the day off with a trip to MyBerry(25 Rue Vieille du Temple), the only froyo place I’ve seen in Paris which has saved my life considering how much frozen yogurt I have back in the States. All in all, this was a great way to end a great weekend.
