Once night falls, the Eiffel Tower lights up. And at the top of each hour, the tower twinkles for about 15 minutes. It's the most beautiful thing. I caught the end of it on video but it is a million times better in person.
View from the great lawn:

And on our walk to the Eiffel Tower, we found the real Central Perk!

Julie: Yup (totally lying). Do YOU think we can?
Jon: Nope. You'd get bored and I'd get hungry.
There's a reason why this marriage works.

I should really bite my tongue but I don't think I can. Seriously, what is up with the popped collar?!?! It's not even one of those shirts that people traditionally "pop." I try to be understanding when I see tweens and teens doing the same because, well, they're experimenting. But Ina's fashion statement is screaming I live in the Hamptons and that's how WE rock our shirts here. After a couple years at JGSM, I've seen enough popping!!!! Grrr.
Verdict? Ina's got culinary prowess so I think she wins.

Pizza with pretty much everything on it.
I ordered a vegetarian pizza but spur of the moment asked for prosciutto on top. The big Italian man who took my order raised his eyebrow and gave me a weird look. While we waited for our pizza, I saw him cut up vegetables and then took a wash cloth to scrub his shoes. During this entire time he didn't wash his hands. This, to me, is the real Italian kitchen.
We're leaving the island of Capri and spending the night in the ghettos of Naples before flying back to Paris for another day. Apparently, crime is to Naples as the Mafia is to Sicily. I guess we should've planned a little better.
