June 26, Marche, Notre Dame, Louve

All good things must come to an end.

As the time passed by, we are now on the last and final day of our time together, so many things left to do and buy. So many places we said we would visit but still haven’t. There was nothing scheduled today besides the room check so everyone had most of the day off.

“Live as much as possible. This is a good time in your life to experience all of these things. Living in the moment more. It gives more meaning to the memories and pictures because they’re secondary,” something Kim, my roommate said to me before on my weekend trip to Brussels and it stuck with me. So I decided today, I was going to do everything I said I was going to.

The day started off with a trip to the marche near the metro which is opened on Friday and Sundays with Eliana and Yayun. There we wandered about looking for last minute gifts and souvenirs that would catch our eyes. We also purchased fresh nectarines to eat before the flight tomorrow. Afterwards was a little shopping at the supermarket and went back to the hotel to cook breakfast.

Next stop was the Louvre, visited it once but was only outside taking pictures, I decided to go inside today! Traveled by myself and so I decided to wander around a little. Viewed many Greek mythology Gods such as Diana, Athena and Artemis.
