Lauren and I met up in our Invalides hotel and trotted off to the Eiffel Tower for the first evening. Here we're at the base. It was a great reunion and busy 5 days in Paris trying to take in the famous sites.
We got around by metro, and spent plenty of time reading the maps trying to figure out how to get around efficiently. I'd say Lauren is totally competent on the Paris metro now. Not me.
The key to having a good time when everyone around you is speaking a language that you can't express yourself in? Drink some more wine. This was Frederic and I at a big dinner party celebrating a friend's retirement from Air France. Bebe - have a great time painting!
We spent a couple of hours enjoying the sounds of mass and the quiet of Notre Dame Cathedral.
