My room was right off the lobby and I was afraid I'd be wakened early by the staff preparing for breakfast. However, there was a second door that I could close that muffled all sound. Nicely decorated room (tiny bit of wear and tear but nothing to complain about), and reasonably sized bathroom. I only stayed one night so can't opine re housekeeping or a long-term stay. Gentleman at the front desk was smiley and welcoming, and graciously put up with my French. The hotel is well located for Gare Montparnasse, and the next street over has several creperies. Boulevard du Montparnasse and the Cimitiere du Montparnasse are close by as well. As a single, female traveler, I felt safe at Hotel Delambre.

Traffic was pretty awful getting to SeaTac this afternoon. There was construction around Montlake, and the freeway was just backed up like usual. I was getting a little worried, but we made it to the airport in plenty of time. And then I found out that my flight was delayed one hour. Sigh ... On the bright side, John knows a secretary at Byrnes & …
... is surrounded by forest on all sides and is the home of the hunting palace where the kings (at least the ones who had heads) would visit each summer. It also houses one of only 3 Royal Tennis courts in France. We went to a game whilst we were there. Totally insane, played with a cricket ball and use the walls on all sides to bounce it off. No hope of every understanding rules.
So much more to tell but ...

Things I learned today:
-Go to Versailles with a ticket in hand.
-If you sit outside at a café, the guy next to you will be smoking, and the wind will blow it in
-Snoop Dog/Lion is literally "Snoop Chien" here. Which for some reason is hilarious to
-People are at their worst in crowds. Well, maybe the MN State Fair already taught me that one.
... It was intense this morning saying goodbye. To have met these incredibly people only two weeks ago and connect instantly and share such an amazing journey and get so close, saying goodbye and not knowing if you would see each other again was incredibly hard. Just gives you more reason to travel just to keep in touch with our Contiki family. I have had such an amazing time and I will really only have one more entry tomorrow from Richmond. Love to you all and the countdown begins until we are home ...
... had a night tour booked on an open top bus so we headed into town to get some dinner - there was one thing we all had on our minds to try - SNAILS!! We ordered some snails and actually these were delish!! Yes!! we had tried snails and survived! We headed to the tour which was amazing - Paris by night was stunning, so pretty and very romantic - highlight of the night was definitely seeing the Eiffel Tower all lit up and every hour ...
