there were so many random carousels – this one was by Hotel de Ville

made a short trip to Montmartre, discovered so much cute street art along the way – it was such a hipster area where all the poor and broke artists and writers used to live

the (in)famous Moulin Rouge!

made the best decision ever to climb up to the top of 59th floor of Montparnasse Tower for this amazing view of Paris at night, despite it being crazily windy and bone-chilling cold

ended our Paris portion of the trip with a nice breakfast by the station Gare Du Nord
