De retour d'Europe (part 2)

The second part of my trip took place in Paris. As always, the food was delicious. The only problem with restaurants in Paris is that you can't eat out on the terrace unless you're a smoker or don't mind the odor of cigarettes. 

I went to Disneyland Paris. If you experienced a Disney park in the US, you might be deceived by the lack of cleanliness in this park (floating Coke bottles in "It's a Small World") and people do not respect the designated smoking areas. The attractions are great though. I recommend Phantom Manor (their version of The Haunted Mansion) which is quite different from the one in other parks.

Back in Paris, I visited "La Sainte-Chapelle" which is quite impressive and also went to Notre-Dame de Paris. In terms of shopping, I went to the Galeries Lafayette, Le Printemps and Le Bon Marché. Even if there aren't many affordable things at Le Bon Marché, you have to go see La Grande Épicerie, the food hall of this department store. The other good thing about Le Bon Marché is that, unlike Lafayette or Printemps, it isn't invaded by tourists and also seemed to have more A/C.
