Still No Photos

The street on which sits our hotel

I can't really find a wonderful internet server, so I can't get photos up onto my blog. I'll post a buttload later, but right now I'll just blog!

After the haircut and meal on Saturday we ambled over by the Louvre, then on to the Eiffel Tower where we picked up a roasted chicken, some bread and fruit and chocolate and sat for a picnic below the tower. We sat, eating and talking, while it slowly glowed blue in the setting sun. Then at 8:00 pm it began sparkling with lights - so lovely!

Hannah said she wondered if the folks living nearby ever got upset at the lights. I wonder...

We strolled back across the river and took the Metro home - late - well, late for us!

We had an appointment at 10:00 for a bike tour, so we high-tailed it to the Ile de la Cite to meet the other bike tour folks. I was a bit worried about the tiny wheeled, folding bikes, but they were extremely easy to ride and quite comfortable (LOVE that gel seat!)

We rode through the 3, 4th, around to the 5th, 6th and a teeny bit close to the 7th before we returned. On Sundays the highway along the seine on the right bank is closed to cars, bikes only, so we had a singular experience! It was such an amazing trip - I'm SO glad that Amy found out about it!

Back home on Sunday for some sitting and resting, then we went out for cake and wine to celebrate Amy's daughter's birthday. It was an exceptional evening - we had such a nice time.

Today after visiting La Chapelle and Le Conciergerie, we split up - Amy and her daughter doing some shopping in the Latin Quarter, Hannah and I walking a bit (ice cream on Ile de St. Louis!) and returning to the Frog & Rosbif for lunch and some wifi time. So many emails were waiting - oy!

And now we're off to Sacre Coure, maybe, or maybe we'll just shop around here. We're near La Drogerie and Mokubu, both of which I want to hit...

OK. Berthillon, La Droguerie and Mokubu?! You're really killing me now! Paris is so divine, and you sound like you're having a wonderful time together. Can't wait for the next installment (despite the fact that I am insanely jealous) :-)

When I was 19 - a long, long time ago - I spent 2 weeks in Paris. A lovely city that I wish I could go back a visit again. Life keeps getting the way though. As it wasn't "cool" to go up the Eiffel tower or take photos or other touristy things, I only have my memories.Your blog posts are bringing my memories back to life. Thank you!

Oh, I love the ice cream shop on the Ile St. Louis! It was the first place I ever had both apricot and coffee ice cream. Wonderful!
