woke up in paris, in the 9th arrondissement.

it's kelsey's birthday. we started walking at 6am

i shall be as serious as pleasure itself.

king louis xiv, place des victoires

the manicured palais royal gardens.

it was still early enough that we were the only tourists in sight.

"stop the violence of the rich" i think. along the seine.

apartments along the 5th.

the luxembourg gardens

david, victorious over goliath

marius standing on the ruins of carthage, 1857

and a 12km finish at cafe de flore. we're banging 'em out today, a proper tourist marathon.
