Day 6

Last full day in Paris.  In the morning, we went to the airport to pick up another friend of Pierre's. Like me, she knew Pierre through DTU.  Her name was Gosia, from Poland.  She was staying for a week in Paris as well, but, with a different friend.  However, her friend couldn't meet her at the airport, so we did.

We decided to go to Versaille directly from the airport because it was nearby.  We got there pretty early; like 10am.  Even then, it was PACKED.  There must have been 500 people in line to enter the palace.  We didn't want to wait in that line so we just toured the outside; for free.  We walked around the building and toured the gardens and it was beautiful, although the weather was a little overcast.  

After Versaille, we went back to Pierre's house with Gosia.  We hung out there for a little while and then went to the city.  From there, we told Gosia where to go and Pierre and I walked around for a little while longer.  We were tired so we went back to his house for dinner and then went back to Paris again and met up with one of Pierre's good friends.  The three of us hung out in the city till late, just talking and doing some casual drinking next to the river.  Then we went home.

Day 7:

My flight wasn't till 8pm that night so we planned on going to the Catacombs.  However, we didn't get up early enough and we were worried about traffic, so we just relaxed for the day and then Pierre went with me by train to the airport at like 5.  The journey home was easy.
