I decided to do a throwback image for today. This last fall I spent 3 weeks in London and Paris with my parents as a partial celebration of their 30-year wedding anniversary as well as my graduation from UCSD with my Masters Degree. Paris is truly a magical city with so much history and staggeringly beautiful architecture and art. It surprised me in that the city was dirtier than I had expected, but so full of culture and such a wide variety of people--tourists and Parisians alike. We visited the Eiffel Tower the last night that we spent in Europe, and it was pretty spectacular to see it all lit up and then to see the sparkle lights every hour. It's definitely a experience I will never forget!
