Nous Sommes Ici- à Paris!


Flights went well enough that we had the energy to take RER (train) from airport yesterday. 20 Euros for the two of us beats more expensive taxi. Plus taxi wouldn't have offered in-our-car live busking. Gypsy accordion followed by full-on, straight-up hip-hop, sound system (loud!!) and all... 

Arriving at hotel before noon, we managed two meals, purchase of earrings (made by a Parisian artisan), walked almost 10 kilometres AND had a delicious nap.

Now it's Sunday, 6:30 am and we're getting ready for a run. Planning a trip to the flea market, dinner with friends, and who knows what other adventures. Happy Mothers Day!

    1. Not sure how we did it. Usually I get pretty wonky the first day. Might really wallop me later.

  11. You both look as though you're thoroughly enjoying yourselves in Paris. And you look way too young to be retiring!!!

  14. Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I'm finding it really frustrating to respond individually with the technology I've got with me, but please know that I'm reading each comment and appreciating the company.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
