Snow and slush underfoot didn't stop us from driving all the way to Ikea (or le Suédois, as it is known in France). I got a few things I needed without breaking the bank. We looked for a Michael's but they are spread out in the suburbs miles and miles away. I was happy just to get to Ikea, since I rarely go there. I know I can get there by subway but I need the car to bring stuff home!! so whenever my Friend R. gets one of those Share Cars, we go and do stuff.
