In case you notice the crickets hopping around the blog lately, I’m in Paris for the week (with a brief jaunt to Switzerland for a couple of days to see Mumford & Sons). This is my first trip to Europe in years and my first trip to Paris EVER.
Yesterday, we arrived to a rainy, dreary Paris. After the 8 plus hour flight, I was super tired (thanks to the laughing, seat punching people behind me on the plane). I blame the tiredness for the first day being a bit of a gong show. You see, I fell in the metro.
No ….not like a tiny trip…nope.
I FELL in the METRO. Like BOOM….flat out, face down, arm between the train and the platform….
FELL in the metro. I think I scared the hell out of Dewey and the rest of the people on that train car. He helped me up & a nice man jumped up to give me his seat. Thankfully I wasn’t hurt too badly. Two bruised knees, a skinned hand, ripped jeans and a large bruise on my arm were all the injuries I sustained. Obviously, it could have been much, much worse.
Whatever….I’m in Paris! Onward and upward is what I say! Today? Much better. How could it not be when I had the best pain au chocolat in the word? Exactly.
