List No. 3

A few of my favorite things to do on a rainy afternoon in Paris:

1. Visit the Musée d'Orsay. Hands-down my favorite museum.

2. Spend some time admiring the couture at Le Bon Marché, or even better, soaking in the sensory overload that is La Grande Epicerie.

3. Get lost in the haphazard coziness of Shakespeare & Co.

4. Swing by Colette, where the loud music, loud colors, loud tourists, loud everything will make you forget all about the rainy-day blahs. Just click here and make sure the volume's on, you'll see what I mean.

5. Sit by the window in a café and watch the world go by, sipping your tiny espresso and looking all French and aloof.

6. When all else fails...give in to the gloom! Grab an umbrella, sprint to the newsstand on the corner for a couple magazines, sprint back home, curl up in bed. Sometimes it's just necessary.
