Paris is a lot like New York. Once you figure out how to use the trains, buses and subways you can go anywhere. It takes about 40 minutes to get to downtown Paris from our Villa. Our first stop yesterday was just outside of the Moulin Rouge...we walked from our stop up to Sacre Coure. We climbed up a massive set of stairs to overlook the whole city of Paris. We ate our lunch on the steps of the cathedral with a mix of locals and tourists from all over the world,while being enertained with Bob Marley and Mana. It was magical. Teena was sitting on the other side of me and in trueTeena fashion was gone trying to commnicate with someone, a very cute local guy. She spent a half an hour or so talking to him and knew no more about him at the end, than in the beginning. So many people said that EVERYONE speaks english, I have found this TOTALLY UNTRUE. I've tried English and Spanish and even a few French sentences and I get NO WHERE. It makes me laugh......people are so kind and try so hard to understand, but it's like talking "baby."
We left to the Louvre and due to our schedule for the rest of the trip I had to litterally run through it. When I come back I vow to spend at LEAST one whole day just in the Louvre. We got a glimps of the Eiffel Tower glittering and then headed home.
We are just now getting ready to head out to the shoot. Our location has changed, so we will see how it goes. I'm so excited. I've been shooting constantly and still feel like I haven't even started to capture the slightest bit of how AMAZING this whole experience has been! Wish me luck!!! Bon Jour ALL!!!
