Paris: Day Three
I got a late start this day. I woke up, got ready, and then headed to the Louvre, but much like David Sedaris, a man, I would call one of my many mentors, I wasn't headed to see the artwork. I was headed to the Apple Store which is directly opposite of the entrance. I went in was taken aback. It's been almost a year since I entered into a proper Apple Store. Wow! I love the feeling and the rush as you enter. They had iPads everywhere! I played around on a few for about an hour and then decided to head out to find meself some Starbucks.
On my way out, I saw a lady holding a cup! I was like omg. "Excuse moi, Madame, where did you get your starbucks?" I realized later that, my statement was a mix of the new Kate. A little bit Minnesota and a little bit Naija. Anyway, she responded in a Midwestern accent and gave me directions. I was so surprised and elated. However, I didn't understand the directions fully and got lost, kinda. It took me about an hour to actually find Starbucks. I was still so thrilled. I enjoyed my one and only cup I had the entire time I was in Paris. Next trip, more coffee will be had.
Anyway, this was my Saturday in Paris. I later went to the grocery store next door, MonoPrix to get drinks and other provisions for my night in.
