Nuit Blanche.

Last night was nuit blanche.  I’m not sure what officially nuit blanche is, but the general gist is lots of things going on in the streets of paris, and lots of museums open for free all night.  It wasn’t quite as lively as we had thought but it was still an ace night just wandering around Paris till 6am :) The highlight was probably attempting to ‘appreciate’ all the modern art in the Pompidou centre (and failing misserably and collapsing into giggles every 3 minutes.. :D).  Looooads of pics up on Flickr, shall put a few choice ones here:

Today Lauren and I headed to the Musee d’Orsay because all the museums are free on the first sunday of month and I hadn’t been here yet this time in Paris.  Alas, when we got there the queues were horrific so we decided to have a touristy wander instead and headed over to the eiffel tower as Lauren hadn’t seen it yet.  Twas lovely as always!

It’s been a fab weekend.  Definately secured my settled in feeling :p I love all the people I’ve met here and I’m genuinely relaxed and excited for this year now! Yey!

Au Revoir! xx
