... first day of rain, (probably since Edinburgh!), so we only had short walk in town before back to the hotel to read and for me to write this travel blog.
Tomorrow we take the big highways and some toll roads towards Paris. First to Orly Airport to drop the car off, then into the heart of Paris to the apartment which will our home for a few days.
