4:22am in the air...somewhere over the Atlantic! Arrival time 7:41am. Goodnight! Arrived in Paris!! About a 20 min ride from airport to hotel. Our rooms were not ready so we grabbed breakfast. I've been fighting a headache/migraine most of today...spent most of it curled up on a sofa in the lounge!

At this point we were pretty sciences out, so we left the museum and headed back ...
... and fun memories when we were here before. We enjoyed ice cream bars as we watched happy children going on the merry-go-round. One little guy was having the time of his life...all fun and laughter!
We headed back to the neighborhood close to where we stayed last time. Found a place to have a cool drink and sat at a bar in the nice dining room. Only place to sit. The funniest thing that happened ...
