... a late lunch/ early dinner. We ended the night with a Seine River cruise - seeing all the same sights from a different viewpoint. By then we were all sweaty, tired, and ready to go home. So instead of trying to figure out the hot Metro, we opted for a cool, air conditioned taxi right to our door. Well spent euros! And a well spent day! Happy 4th, ...

Being nothing but predictable we bought tuna, rocket, sun dried tomato and bread to go with our pesto and also picked up some chips and chocolate (one block as a present to Corrin). Back at the apartment it got to 9 and we were just beginning to think we wouldn't see our host at all when she walked through ...
