East End Kids: I Love Paris In The Springtime

Mom told me that is a line from an old song, so I am using it as my title. We just did a “Mommy and Me” trip to Paris. At first I didn’t want to go, but Paris changed my mind – it is old and beautiful and the food – well it is delicious! My first day included the Batteaux Mouches on the Seine, a boat trip around the city, and I saw the places I would later visit. Then we went to Notre Dame, a really large cathedral, where I lit some candles and listened to organ music that was calm and peaceful.

All around Paris there are so many dogs, everyone seems to have one and they take them everywhere. In Paris, dogs are man’s and woman’s best friend. One of the coolest things that happened was in a park where I met a Chinese girl who spoke no English, only Mandarin and French. I speak no French and a drop (a little drop) of Mandarin. She and I tried to communicate in Mandarin – pretty funny if you’d seen us.

Another day we went to the Aquarium, where I met some British boys and they spoke English with me. Hooray! We did lots of other things, but I will never forget the food. The people eat lots of sweets and they don’t get fat? There was some extraordinarily boring shopping, but it was okay because the rest of the trip was wonderful. Au revoir for now.
