Behind the Petit Trianon was ...

The adrenaline from the night before had taken it’s toll and knocked Erik and me out! We slept from 2:00 to 5:30, and felt refreshed when we woke up. We walked the streets of Montmarte (the cool little city we stayed in) and went to a restaurant for dinner. We had a couple beers (nothing better to cure a little hangover!) and french onion soup (our fav!) ...
