I've always loved me some Egyptian hieroglyphs! Plus, I sincerely miss that hair color.

The preceding two pictures are from a woman's castle in the French countryside. To attest to the feminity of this place, the bathrooms were stunningly beautiful.
One of my closest friends is going to be spending this semester in Paris and I'm so excited (and incredibly jealous!) for her. I wish her the utmost luck and a wonderful time, filled with unqiue and profound experiences. I was really shocked by how city-like Paris is; it wasn't the stuff of romantic notions I thought it would be. However, after I left, I can't help but think of Paris as beautiful, romantic, dream-like city. I did start to see it was truly wonderful after the shock of modernism and tourism subsided.
