... hard to follow seeing it was in French but was still pretty incredible. After that we met up with a friend of our director who lives in France who used to be a tour guide there. He offered to be our own personal tour guide for our trip. The man's name was Mr. Steiner. He took us to Sainte-Chapelle after mass and showed us inside while giving us some history.

A few hundred years later, the skeletons were arranged along walls and people were ...
... asparagus and other veg. Once we had finished at the market, we headed back to the apartment to put everything away and to head out again for a hop-on, hop-off bus trip around the city. We ended up not hopping off until we'd done a full circuit. It was a real treat to see Adams face when he saw the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe for the first time.
