A day and a half in Paris

We checked into our hotel on the left 

bank and metroed to the right bank- 

presumably to a TI that turned out to be 

another fake-out one. We picked up 

some good Paul

sandwiches that we took to eat at the 

Jardin de Tuleries.

We then strolled to the Louvre, not to go 

in but to admire from the outside.

We backtracked to the Place de 

Concorde and decided to walk up the 

Champs Elysee to the Arch de 


We then metroed close to the Eiffel 

Tower but didn’t want to wait in line to 

get closer.

We then walked back to our room.

We walked in our neighborhood a while 

before finding a place to eat. I had duck, 

Teresa lamb, both very good.

In the morning we metroed to St. Michel.

We then walked to Notre Dame, a long 

line so we walked around Ile de la Cite 

before metroing to the Museum of

Jaquemart Andre, a museum we had 

never been to before. It was a great 

museum with art from the Renaissance 

through Impressionists ( no photos 

allowed of the Impressionists) in a

pleasant setting.

We then walked along Hausmann 

Boulevard, doing some shopping, some 

church viewing and finally to the 

LaFayette Gallery, a shopping mecca.

We then metroed to the Basilica of St. 

Denis and walked the pedestrian street 


We then metroed to Sacre Cour and 


We finally metroed back to Notre Dame 

and visited as a Mass was winding 


Back to the room.

We chose a nearby Korean restaurant 

for dinner; I had beef,Teresa pimento 

pork, both good.

Of course we both had gelato, it was our 

last night.
