Paris: Day 3

Day 3 was Kara's 22nd bday! It was also our day for group shopping. Really. The fibers girls were split up into groups of 3 or 4 and each chose a store to go to from these books. We then had to navigate around and visit them, and buy things! My favorite store was this cute one called Au Petit Bonheur la Chance. It had amazing antique trinkets and lots of great finds.After shopping Kara and I found the cutest cafe. Kara got a croissant that melted her fork! It was ok because the cafe was so cute. I finished the meal off with a yummy chocolate tart!
The afternoon was all about FIAC, the contemporary exhibition we attended at the Louvre and the Grand Palais. It was interesting, there were some nice pieces and some that were just weird. Each artist had their own gallery space with their work in it, it was at times a little overwhelming, but overall it was a good experience.
After FIAC Janelle, Kara, and I walked down le Champs-Elysees to the Arc de Triumph. After seeing all of that we made our way back to the Latin quarter and went out for amazing sushi for Karas bday! It was so yummy and so much fun. We ended the night at an English pub for a glass of cider, all in all it was another good day in Paris.
