Video of my apartment:
- Paris, France is seven hours ahead of Austin, Texas.
- Paris is divided into 20 districts (arrondisements), numbered starting in the middle of the city and spiraling outward.
- It doesn't start getting dark until 10 pm!!!

After Ste. Chapelle, we continued our walk and saw a bird market, and then ended up on Île St.-Louis. After seeing long lines out of many stores, we found out it was the hot spot for ice cream and sorbet. We were trying to decide which line to join when I overheard someone say that a certain one was said to be the best and point across the street… so that’s where we went. I had a cone with "raspberry with hint of rose" sorbet and "honey with nougat" ice cream. The sorbet was pretty amazing, the rose flavor was so different!
