On July 31, we went to the Louvre. It was hot and sticky in the building. We went there to look at the famous, the real one, the one and only, Mona Lisa picture. It was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. I was at the front looking at the picture and one of the security men said Sortie and pointed around to the back of the line, and I didn’t know why. I went all the way to the back, and came right back to the front ( but it took some time.) When we were done that, we left the building. HURRAY.
After the Louvre, we went for a late lunch. I had scrumptious lasagna. We finally finished dinner and we went back to the apartment and chillaxed for a little while. After that we went to a park. There were people in it, but the person who owned it said it was closed. So then we were walking home, and decided, you know what? Since we still have tickets for the Louvre lets go back and see the crown jewels. I didn’t want to, I said no it’s hot and sticky in there. Then I gave in, because I didn’t want to ruin anyone’s day.
On August 1st, Nathan’s 11th birthday, we left Paris and took the train to Strasbourg. We went to Avis, rented a car, and just our luck, it’s orange again. We hopped in, got settled, and drove here to Switzerland. We got settled into our house, and then we took a walk and fed some cows. They had bells on, so the farmer could hear them. We walked down our hill and saw a carnival happening. Dad said we should check it out later, because we were all starving to death. We got to the restaurant and flies, flies, flies. But luckily they had the dish that I liked. I ordered… chicken nuggets and french fries. Sounds really unhealthy, it is, but everyone liked them, they were so delicious. And my drink was Coca-cola. After dinner we checked out the carnival and looked at all the rides, even though we didn’t go on any. Went home and went to bed.
On August 2nd (today) we drove to Bern. It’s a little city. We were going to a bear park to keep us entertained. And when I say bear park, I mean the animal bear park. But it was closed off, they were doing some stupid construction. they said they were going to be back in Autumn. But we’re not here then- no fair! After that we walked to the main street to get something to eat. We found a really cool store with only actual Swiss Food, not some silly Italian food. We had fondue for the first time. It’s just melted cheese that you can dip things in. Sometimes it’s melted chocolate and sometimes it’s something else. We dipped bread into ours, and the crust on the bread was hard and made my tooth start to wiggle. I was wiggling it and wiggling it. I tried pushing it to one side and it literally shot out of my mouth. It fell on the ground but I got it. Don’t worry it’s not broken. Mom wrapped it in some paper to protect it. It was a bloody one. I’m fine, don’t worry. I’m going to safely wrap it under my pillow, and hopefully I get something for it.
