Dear Mom,

I’m here in Paris, the beautiful sunny north of France! I miss you so much but I am having an amazing time. I’m staying in a really nice hotel overlooking the Eiffel Tower. (You would be so proud, breakfast included!) On Monday I explored the heart of the city. I visited one of the most prominent buildings in Paris, yes, you guessed it, The Eiffel Tower! It is the most fascinating structure I have ever seen. The elevator went up and I was so astonished how much of Paris you could see from up there. It was absolutely breathtaking. On Tuesday I went to see the Mona Lisa. It was much smaller than I had imagined but still an extraordinary piece of artwork. Later that day I went to take a walk around the small streets with brightly colored houses and potted flowers (This might have been my favorite part!) I also took a trip to a pastry shop and OMG the croissants were to die for! On Wednesday, I decided to take a day to explore the shops and the libraries. I found some really cool books and clothes. Everything is so cheap here! Right now i am sitting in a small cafe sipping my espresso and eating my croissant. Just thinking of you Mom……I wish you were still here. I’m so sorry that I never got to see you when you were in hospital. Not a day goes by when I don’t feel guilty…I just want to let you know I am so so sorry, for everything. I know it was your dream to come to Paris and I finally went and I’m here.

I only wish you were too,

Lots of love,

Your daughter.
