Paris Visit Summer 2006

My First Visit to Paris

I took my first international visit from in May 2006 to Paris, as a graduation present for completing my undergraduate degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Being a graduate sounds very funny to me, for the forseeable future since I will continue at the same university, doing the same things, for my Master Degree.

I left on Saturday, May 13 from DIA. I flew to Chicago, and then on to Paris where I arrived the next moring. I spent five of the best days of my life (ignoring travel days) resting, having fun, and generally being a tourist. My excursions are detailed below. I left Paris on Saturday, May 21 and flew in to Denver on the same day (just barely).
