Paris, je t'aime

Hi everyone! So, I am restarting my blog! I am living in Paris for the year doing the first part of my masters program...so...I thought this would be a great way to share a little bit of Paris with everyone.

I'm not just going to focus on food but living here as well!! I already have some funny stories lol

To start off with, eating has been really easy here! It's just like New York, you can get anything, anywhere at anytime. The only thing I have noticed is that I haven't had too many veggies, a lot of fruit but I have to increase the veggies.

Funny story 1: I got a Falafel in St.Michel the other day, which is super touristy and right by my apartment. Anyway, I THOUGHT the lady asked me if I wanted carrots. Apparently, when I proceeded to say "oui" and she stared at me for 5 min, she said "quatre quarante" which means 4,40 euros. HA. oops.

Funny story but not so funny at the same time: I went a runnin' in the Jardin de Luxembourg, which is also about 2 min from the apt. I was feeling pretty great so I tried to hop over a 100lb chain, only, it caught my shin, I fell, was bleeding and hobbled home. This is prolly why french people don't run.

But really, you don't need to run here. I have walked more in the past week than ever in my life.

Good Eats:
1. Crepe Nutella..always delicious
2. Grilled Salmon
3. Delicious salads with their standard yet amazing dressing

I also went grocery shopping which is an experience. First, their eggs aren't refrigerated..um weird but whatever. Also, they literally sell like 3 salad dressings. I swear every person in france uses the same dressing. Which I love, but still. Ain't no ranch to be found lol. I'm scared of their milk. Just puttin' it out there.

More updates to come, you know you love me
