One thing I learned about Paris - don't rely solely on cabs! Is it just me or does Paris seem to have a shortage of them?!
I seem to be talking a lot about cabs in my travel posts lately hahah
After dropping off my luggage at the hotel, I went for a walk. I stayed in the 6th arrondissement; one of my favourite areas. I was near St.-Germain-des-Pres so I walked past Cafe de Flore and Deux Magots (& crossed them off my checklist) then made it to the Louvre and Tuileries. From there, I wanted to go to the Eiffel Tower by a cab since I was already exhausted. I figured I should just walk in any direction and one will come by soon. None did.
I even went by an embassy (?) to ask one of the guards for directions. He was very nice but didn't speak a word of English. So I kept walking as it got darker and darker. I wandered into little deserted streets..I'll admit at that point I got a bit scared. I just kept looking up at the top of the Eiffel Tower and walking in the general direction.
