Another Lovely Day in France

Sorry it's been a few days since I posted last. We have been so busy with everything in Paris that by the time we get back to the apartment we are pretty much exhausted and taking turns using our computer. I'll try to get you as updated as I can.

I'll go back to Friday. That was our crazy tourist day! We had been on the open bus the day before and so we knew where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do right away. We first figured out the Metro. It's just like the books takes about two days to understand all the lines and then it was a piece of cake.

Here are the most important things that we take everywhere...the MOST important...the GermX! ...and the map!

We first went to Notre Dam...beautiful! The rose windows are the most beautiful things you'll ever see.

We explored the Hotel de Invalides which is the home for the tens of thousands of soldiers that King Louis IV had built for the injured soldiers returning from war. Now it's the resting place of Napolean.
Then we traveled to the Louvre. We didn't enter but enjoyed the Toulleries and the fountains. If we have time today, we are going back.

Along the way, we saw french men...
...and french women. Honestly...we had so much fun people watching! Obviously the french enjoy people watching also because every brasserie is set so everyone faces the street.

We ended our busy day with a trip to Angelina's for the best hot chocolate ever! We ordered big and had no idea how rich it would be.Today we are off to the Eiffel Tower, climbing the Arc de Trompe and the flea markets!
