Then I did a bit of shopping and chillin' before heading back to the Hostel. France has elected a new President, Sarkozy, while I've been here and in Paris (especially, it seems) people are insanely passionate about politics. So there were aparantely some riots and broken windows, but nowhere where we are staying. Some of our friends went to the rallys and said they were nuts, but Ans and I stayed far away and talked to a friend of Ans's who was also at our hostel and chilled before getting ready to leave Paris for Bayeux, a town in Normandy.
