Another Parisian Sunrise

April 10, 2017 · 2

Cee F. -  - Another Parisian Sunrise

Most mornings in Paris, we are up well before the sun. Both Parisians and tourists like to stay out late, which means that they are mostly still in bad after sunrise. If you’re out before 8am, you can almost feel as though the city belongs to you alone. Very little opens before ten o’clock, so aside from stopping at a bakery to pick up a baguette, or pausing for a cup of coffee (which, I admit, I do drink here, with lots of cream and sugar, because tea in Paris is an outrageously expensive luxury – think $7 a cup, unless you’re at McDonald’s – that I save for very special occasions) at a sidewalk cafe, there is little to do by stroll, admiring the quiet streets as you pass through them. Early mornings are the best time to see tourists attractions, especially the Eiffel Tower – in the early morning, the views from the Trocadero are nearly unfettered, since tour groups carrying flags and brandishing selfie sticks have yet to descend on the square. I remember the first time I saw the Eiffel Tower when I was fifteen, I sort of wondered what the fuss was all about – and then felt guilty for wondering, knowing so many people never have the chance to see it. But that was a rainy night when the tower was packed with visitors. In the early morning light, it is a sight to behold and, half a lifetime later, I’ve finally realized why so many people fall in love with it. I know it’s the last thing anyone wants to do, but if I can give one piece of truly meaningful advice, it’s this: if you’re lucky enough to come to Paris, do not waste a moment of your trip on sleeping in. Believe me, you won’t regret it. (And packing a suitcase full of beautiful dresses won’t hurt, either. I lugged fifty pounds worth of mostly maxi dresses from Vancouver to Paris, including this one from Metisu, and I have no regrets.)
