Paris - Post 3

Our hotel was in the Monmartre district of Paris. On our first day there, after almost no sleep on the plane, we set out to explore the area a little bit. We had marked the Cafe Du 2 Moulins on our map, but happened upon it by accident that day. We were just walking in general directions in awe of everything and before we knew it, there we were. This was the cafe featured in the movie Amelie. It is about a block and a half away from the Moulin Rouge and doesn't stand out too much from the other cafes we encountered in the area. It was cool to see the specials written on the mirrored walls as they are in the movie, and it just felt very Paris-y to be there on the first day. We each got a really good meal and enjoyed watching folks pop in to take photos every few minutes. It certainly added a little magic spark to our first day in the city of lights.
