Europe Trip 2010 – Waking up for Normandie (Day 55)

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 I woke up randomly at 5am this morning and I thought about going downstairs to see if the noises I could hear were the guys hanging out downstairs, or perhaps I could go up on the roof to catch a Parisian sunrise. But I was too lazy to get up on [...]
