We got up around 11 a.m. and went first to a bakery to buy a bread for our breakfast. Our plan for that day was visiting  Versailes, Moulin in the evening and eventually Sacre Ceur. In fact, the Carce Ceur cathedral I could see from the window at Hanna`s appartment.
We left the falt in early afternoon and caught a train to Versailles. On the way there, we met a girl from Brasil who was asking us for directions. She was a bit confused as she didn`t speak French (and neither me!) and was keen to speak English. Hanna became her translator and helped her out to get where she wanted. We had a chat for a few minutes and after that time we decided to meet up on the next day, under the Notre Dame cathedral.
The Versailles palace was huge and very pretty, and we were well impressed by its gardens. I remembered that place from 4 years before when I had been there last, but didn`t have any opportunity to get inside the palace then. Me and Hanna were wandering there a long while and turned back to the palace around 4 p.m. It was a bit too late though, as after we had seen  exhibition about royal rooms we found out it was 5 p.m. and rest of the exhibitions were going to be closed at that time. A bit disappointed, we decided to get back home and have a dinner. The Versailles was beautiful and amazing, a pity we couldn`t see everything what we wanted to and what we paid for.
On the way back we stopped at Pompidou Centre to get some drink from Starbucks.
For the dinner Hanna made us Spanish Totilla and also Japanese Sushi, both of them were just delicious. She said she didn`t know how to cook proper food, but she knew how to make e.g. sushi. It was aleady 9:00 p.m. or even later when we were heading to Moulin Rouge, and we had to come back home before11 p.m. as Hanna`s parents were supposed to call her.
When we got to Moulin Rouge - quite colourful and funky but also a little bit dodgy area, we were like "Who can we trust and give our camera to take us a photo?". I looked around and was like: "Lets ask our friends!" We both couln`t believe, but yes, that was the couple we had met at the Eiffel Tower a night before. Hanna said: "Timmy, Timmy!!" (she remembered how his friend was calling him a day before) and the couple was like: "HEYYYY!!" We were laughing to death, what a coincidence!! They took us a photo and we also got one with Tim, hahah. I was taking pictures around, when Hanna told me: "Make sure you won`t upload the ones with sexshops on Facebook.com, you might get a warning!". And then Tim said:"Oh you girls facebook, too?? No way!" So, we exchanged our emails and facebook names, had chat for a little while and then me and Hanna had to go. I could swear it wasn`t last time when we would see them. Hanna said to Tim and his mum (YES, the lady was his mum! I would never guess it, she looked so young and so pretty!) that we felt like magnetism to each other so we would probably meet soon. She was joking, but I just knew we would bump into them again!
While changing trains, we missed our stop because of chatting and laughing so we had to run up 6 floors to the flat. We both didn`t want Hanna`s parents to misscall, and we managed well. I found Hanna`s talks by phone reallly funny as to her parents she spoke Polish, but to her sister  - English, click-click, lol!
At midnight we drank wine for my Birthday and ate Halawa - the Indian sweet food that I made, yummi yummi. We got a little bit tipsy and were laughing at just everything. I went to bed at 2:30, Hanna a little bit earlier but I knew it would be hard to wake up:).
