This is the day that I learned to use the Metro. I was very intimidated, despite hearing how easy it is. I found out quickly that it certainly is that easy. Paris opened up to me. I could go ANYWHERE! I texted Patrick that Paris was my oyster and set out. This was also the day that I decided to stay out after dark. Very liberating. I mostly hunted down shopping places this day as that felt safe. Saw some amazing places, though, and walked a LOT. Lunch at McDonalds. packed & gross. First and last time. Used the free WiFi at the hotel.
