Today we went to the biggest flea market in the world! We spent six hours browsing and rummaging through old stuff. I got a model of a 1920's British car for 3 Euro and an antique key for 3 Euro as well. When you go to flea markets you have to bargain hard. So first I said "excusez-moi, combien?" which means "excuse me, how much? Then when the man said 2 Euro for another little toy car, I said "un Euro, sil vous plait" and he asked Mum if we were English and Mum said we were Australian so he said I could buy the car for 1 Euro! In the old days France and England had a lot of wars so they joke ... read more
I wonder what this antique key unlocked?

Today I went to the Pompidou Centre. It is a museum of modern art. It made me think differently about art because before I didn't realise that art could also be videos, furniture and lots of objects that are not just paintings. There was one installation called Cafe Little Boy. I learned from the artist that "Little Boy" was the code word for the Americans to drop the atomic bomb on the Japanese in World War II. Cafe Little Boy asked visitors to draw and write messages against war on a blackboard. I drew a smiley face and wrote "Be Happy" under it.... read more

Today I went to the Louvre (twice). The Louvre is the biggest museum in the world. Our guide said it would take 15 days to see everything. I spent 4 hours there mostly in the Egyptian section. I also saw the Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa is behind glass. Do you know why? Because one time a crazy man came in and threw rocks at her!... read more

Today we went to Notre Dame cathedral where the hunchback comes from. We got to hear the choir singing. It sounded beautiful. I got a Notre Dame medallion. Notre Dame means "Our Lady" in English.... read more

Today I climbed the Eiffel Tower And went to very top !!!! It was so crowded. Dad had to wait in the ticket line while I went to the toilet with Mum. We had to wait in the toilet line for nearly ONE hour!!!! When we got back, Dad was still waiting in the ticket line!!!!!! The Eiffel tower was named after its engineer Gustav Eiffel, not its architect who is not famous. We took the elevator to the the top which is about 320 metres high. You can see all of Paris from the top.... read more

Today we arrived in Paris. We are staying in the very centre. Tonight we walked along the Seine River and I could see the top of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. I also saw a modern sculpture of The Eiffel Tower made from fold up chairs! Paris has a lot of cool sculptures and I also climbed one at Les Halles. Tomorrow we are going to climb the real Eiffel Tower.... read more

Siste kvelden i Paris spiste vi en finere middag og delte, til og med, en dessert. Dette er vår siste dag på reisefot sammen (for denne gangen). Senere på kvelden har vi lagt i sengen og sett på bilder, mimret og snakket om de fantastiske folkene vi har møtt på turen. Vi er heldige som har hatt mulighet til å reise på en slik tur. Det er også helt utrolig at det er gått 3 uker allerede, samtidig som at vi har gjort så mye at det er vanskelig å tro at vi har gjort alt på bare 3 uker. Nå sitter vi igjen med blandede følelser om hjemreisen. Det kommer til å bli så deilig å komme hjem til egen seng, privatliv, til å ha klærene i et skap og hjemmelaget mat. Likevel blir det ... read more

På toget til Paris fikk jeg meg en liten beundrer. Ved siden av meg satt nemlig en mor med sønnen sin på fanget. Han var rundt 1-1,5 år og var veldig ivrig til å se på og leke med meg. Og mer enn en gang prøvde han å gå fra morens fang til mitt. Da vi nærmet oss Paris fikk jeg vite at Synnøve hadde avtalt med Austin og Ron, de to amrerikanerne vi lekte drikkeleker med i Praha, at vi skulle møte dem kl 18. Så då begynte stresset! Først fant vi ikke minibank på togstasjonen, og for å si det sånn er ikke togstasjonen liten. Så vi løp opp og ned, fram og tilbake og så etter minibanker. Til slutt viste det seg at det ikke var noen minibanker inne på selve togstasjonen... Etter ... read more
