Au revoir Paris, 你好台灣

Au revoir Paris, 你好台灣 (Goodbye Paris, Hello Taiwan)

Wow, six months go by fast. It doesn't seem that long ago that we were arriving in Paris trying to get our bearings, and now in 24 hours we'll be on a plane, flying back to Taiwan.

Today I went to my favorite place in Paris for the last time, Notre Dame. I'm not a religious person, although today I did sit through an entire mass (hard to brush off 12 years of Catholic school I guess). To me it isn't a spiritual thing, it's just the most peaceful, serene place I've been to in all of Paris. It was always a great place to go to "center" myself. What a privilege to have had that opportunity.

I had no "souvenirs" from Paris so on my walk back from Notre Dame, I saw a store and broke down and bought my one and only Parisian souvenir. I tiny pewter replica of Notre Dame. As irritating as the church bells ringing at all hours of the day was...I'm really going to miss them.

Au revoir Paris!
