Paris, France

The cool thing about France is that you never have to worry about finding a smoking section in a restaurant because everywhere is a smoking section! Just standing in the street leaves one smelling like an ashtray. The French have a crazy fixation with smoking... I guess they think it's still cool. Somehow I wound up in Paris with my parents and 2 younger sisters... We climbed half way up the Eiffel Tower by stairs... saw some old cathedrals, visited Notre Dame's gargoyles looted a castle and spent way too much money on baguettes and pastries. Its super cold here and I don't think the sun ever shines.
