We arrived in Paris to a warm 4 and sunshine, I haven't seen sunshine for a while. We found the hotel and went for a walk around Montmartre and the Sacre Coeur. Went on a little train ride around the pretty streets.
Saw three different scams that I had read about. Gypsies with clip boards that distract you so people can pick pocket you, someone who tries to braid ...
... the solstice for Alan.
The exhibit was nicely done. You enter a round theater, which projects the stone circle around you. One image is it fully completed or constructed in winter solstice. Vague shadowy figures walk on the outside of the circle. The image transforms to the circle as it appears to today, at summer solstice. You hear the cheer of the crowd as the sun rises through the triptych.
In the main hall, the most important display shows ...
... the mazes, fountains, flower beds, statues, tree-lined avenues, and CANALS that form the even more impressive Jardins du Versailles. We used them in the same way we imagine the courtiers used them 400 years ago: to escape the absurd chaos of the palace. After an hour and a half stroll that included a fountain show set to opera music we were ready to return to Paris--not before though grabbing a lunch of sandwiches, salad, and eclairs beside the town's market first. ...
... another transport strike Video Girl and Battery Boy were unable to continue on to Notre Dame station so they caught a taxi to their apartment situated at 35 Rue Bonaparte, Saint Germain. At precisely 12 noon they met their greeter, Sam, who showed them around the apartment and handed the keys over. They unpacked then sat back down in the lounge room and reflected on the opportunity to live like a local for a few days.
They unpacked ...
... sign, anyway.
We had our final dinner in Paris at "La Maison Blanche" a little place on the Left Bank, just off the Pont Neuf, but alas, did not see Obama dining there. Javi had his first meat fondue, which he loved, I had a fantastic French onion soup and boeuf bourgignon, Vero had whitefish and a salad and Tony had a crepe de jambon. We all left happy, needless to say.
