I made it to Paris!! My suitcase hit the 50lbs mark exactly at the airport which was shocking but I think my carryon weighed almost as much. Its not easy getting around with camera equipment and two pieces of luggage. Luckily my apartment isn’t too far from the metro station. I found my apartment online and had some serious worries about its location and safety but the owner and my new neighbors downstairs tell me I have nothing to worry about. I have two balconies in the apartment which are very small just like the apartment but the view is pretty amazing. Here is the view from the main room’s balcony.
