Day 3 of Paris 7/8/14

On Tuesday July 8, 2014, our class task was to go to 5 different districts in Paris. We were asked to visit two star hotels, ask the price per night for a double room, and visit butcher shops and food markets to get the prices of milk, steak, and a dozen of eggs. We also had to take a picture of the two star hotels, and the most prominent tourist attraction in each district. After visiting 3 districts, it started to rain really badly, so we decided to stop at a restaurant to eat. The restaurant we ate in was very expensive, but we had no choice because the weather was so bad. Even though the restaurant was expensive, I think it was all worth it. I ordered a salad that was delicious and it was a good size. The server was also very nice, and had a great sense of humor. While at the restaurant, I learned that some restaurants in Paris don’t allow you to take pictures of your food, which is the total opposite in the United States. After we ate, we decided to go to district 5. In district 5 we ran into this beautiful church called, Place Sainte Genevieve. This church is one of the most prominent tourist attractions, and is filled with gorgeous paintings and sculptures. Doing this assignment helped us understand how price changes according to the area you are in, and how each district markets their products. We found that the two star hotels in each district were great prices, and appeared to be nice. When we finally got finished collecting data from each district, we were so tired. We had been out since 9am, and didn’t return back to the hostel until 8:30pm. I’m really glad we got a chance to do this assignment because; it helped us create a bond with each other.
