A Walk to the Church of Saint Sulpice

On my first full day in Paris, I attempted to battle the infamous French bureaucracy and complete my administrative processing at Sciences Po. The uni is located in the 7th, near the Latin Quarter, so Dad and I set off on foot from our hotel in the 9th. We went through the Jardin des Tuileries, Place de la Concorde, Bv Saint-Germain and finished up in L’église Saint-Sulpice (location of one of the scenes in The Da Vinci Code). Sunrise in Paris right now is around 8:45am, so we didn’t have to set off to early to get the amazingly warm morning light you can see below.
