You might walk by this without noticing, but it’s one of the famous Metro entrances. We learned about this in our third semester of history of art and architecture.

So, we were FREEZING and had to go inside to warm up. Anywhere was fine! So we ducked into a cafe and got crepes.
Nutella crepe… is like Heaven.

That lovely cappuccino cost 5.70 Euros - the prices we pay for warmth!
It was now snowing outside.

Our plan next was to go to the Pantheon. It was included in our Paris Museum Pass.

However, the Pantheon must’ve closed early that day because the most we got to see of it was the exterior.

Again seeking warmth, we saught out shelter in the church nearby.

And then we called it a day and headed back to La Defense.
I was in love with the hotel/mall which was connected to the Metro station.

Note to designers - if you want people to occupy your public space, free Wifi is a definite crowd-pleaser.
That evening, we went drinking with other Clemson students in her study abroad program. We went to Latin Quarter, but by the time we got there, Abby, Alex, and I were exhausted. The bars were crowded, and we were starving, so we saught out pizza and then headed back to go to bed.
