DW swears Amelie was a stalker. I'd like to believe she was less sinister than that. But this lit up movie poster is hard to argue with... Amelie, why you lookin so creepy??
And we're also just around the corner from the infamous Moulin Rouge
(you wouldn't believe the line outside of it on a Friday night - it made us wonder if there was actually something THAT worth seeing inside or if it was just the famous-factor that made it so popular...)
Seven flights of stairs. Over 200 steps. And on our tired out-of-shape legs and feet that are already trucking it all around Paris by day and night. Phew.
It's also definitely a small apartment (is there any other kind under the million dollar range in Paris??) up under the eaves...which can make bathing a bit of a challenge for the taller of the two of us
But, it's still a very charming place that has made DW say (about a million times a day) "I just want to live here!" "I love this apartment!!" etc.
And one other thing to love about the apartment are the views....oh, the views...
The Eiffel Tower out of one side of the apartment:
And Sacre Coeur on the other:
