Later that evening she joins over 3,000 rollerbladers and a police escort in their weekly nighttime skate through the city. She visits the outdoor markets that cater to Paris' ethnically diverse populations and finds some bargains along the way. Later she tours the Picasso Museum in the fashionable Marais district and glimpses the Mona Lisa in the Louvre. Justine concludes her sojourn with a side trip to Disneyland Paris, the most popular tourist attraction in Europe. [57 minutes] Closed Captioning
