Wandering the city

2004-10-02 | Paris, France

Today I got into town at about 7:30 AM and these really friendly French people in my crammed couchette helped me get situated. Once I hit the end of the station a guy walked up to me and asked if I had a place to stay. He showed me pictures of the hostel his sister ran (which was basically a huge house). I got the directions and headed there to check it out, for I would rather just get the pack off and stay at least one night.

I got in there and once I found it I saw that there were Eastern characters describing the location on the map and come to find out they set this up for Korean people visiting France.

I got in and I hadn't had dinner the night and they were having breakfast so the owner insisted I join in. It was very good and it definitely hit the spot.

The good thing about this hostel was that there was free internet so I caught up on things. While I was typing away I talked with the guy who

Versailles, Notre Dame and Korea??

2004-10-04 | Paris, France

Today I woke up and went to my Korean breakfast. This place is starting to grow on me a little. I thought that while in France I would be wining and dining at some nice cafes. But here I am learning about Korean food and customs.

I woke up and went down to eat my breakfast. We have chopsticks and usually a bowl of rice and a bowl of soup. In the middle of the table is 4 dishes with spiced seaweed of some kind, some beans and a some other stuff (maybe some fish). This morning I was feeling rather adventurous and I was feeling comfortable with not disrespecting what they cooked me so I grabbed the milk and sugar and poured it on my rice (Taylor ). Immediately I got a reaction from a girl shocked that I did that. It was hilarious. I was explaining that that was how my family eats it. It was a great conversation piece because we were all giggling about it. They were even giggling about me shaving later.

A rainy Musee Day

2004-10-05 | Paris, France

Today I used up my 'all day' museum pass. First I stopped by the train station to pick up a ticket to Belgium. My friend I met online through this travel site wanted to meet up for a day. I got my tickets and then mapped out all of the museums that sounded interesting.

The first museum that I went into was the Musee D'Orsay. This one was pretty nice and I got the idea in my head to take photos of famous paintings WITH ME IN THE PHOTO! I took a photo of Van Gough's self portrait. I saw some of Monet's landscapes. And although they are quite nice with his use of color or whatever... he didn't really appeal to me.

The next museum was the Rodin museum. I didn't even do any research, I just knew it was popular. I really liked Rodin's sculptures, yet they were kind of like classy porn. Some of these museum buffs were probably like "oh.... I like his use of detail" when in fact their old fart asses are getting all hot and

During World War 2 I ended up in Rheims, France. We were supposed to walk around and monitor this region or block and me and my buddy get around this one area on the block and come across this large institutional building. And there was a whole bunch of girls running around there. We found out that these girls were all diseased hookers. And every time we would walk over to that place we got hooted at. Everybody's got to make a living some way. There were different classes of whores over there. There were these pro stores (prophylactic) stores. By 10 O'Clock at night there would be a huge line there.

Zigg Zigg fucky fucky two pack cigarette, some of the hookers would yell at you. Packages of cigarettes were substitutes for cash. One night, a buddy and I were sitting out at Rainbow corner in Paris and we were watching this fancy looking girl with a fur collar around her. What the hell was she up to?� She was just standing out on the corner. One of these diplomats . . . Read More..
