Monday, July 9- Thursday, July 12, 2012


This week was very rainy and uneventful because it was unpleasant to go out in the cold, so this post will be short. On Tuesday we decided to go to the 18th district. It was very hilly, but beautiful. It seems like a whole different world than what you get to know of Paris. We first visited the Place du Tertre. It's a little square on top of a huge hill where you can see various artists and musicians. This is a great place to go if you want your caricature done. The artists are amazing. Once you climb the hill and the stairs to get to the square, you can see an amazing view of Paris, it was incredible. We ate at a small cafe and then decided to move on after taking photos and relaxing. 

Where we were was very close to the Red Light district, so we decided to go and see what the talk was all about and take pictures of the Moulin Rouge. It was an interesting experience, to say the least, and not something I would say to bring the kids to for its "adult content." After that, we decided to go back to the hotel and call it a night.

Tuesday was an interesting experience, and one of the few days that it didn't rain throughout the week. The locals said it typically doesn't rain this much. We must just be lucky ;)
