... a Dubai "Keith" - he gave us free pastries to take with us for brekky before we left for the airport at 6am the next morning! It is SO hot in Paris. 35 degrees today & clear. We didn't do much yesterday just walked the streets around the hotel. Cute room - very small but at least it has air conditioning and is in such a fabulous location.

Mike and Kyria went off to get some breakfast as they hadn’t had anything while we waited in the line. Then when they got back we swapped over.
Day two in Paris commenced with breakfast at the hotel, made interesting by sharing the dining room with two other groups. Those that managed to get in ahead of the rush enjoyed a decent continental breakfast (and most importantly for me, a decent cup of tea!).
The faces on the buses were significantly brighter than the previous day, although we did discover that we cannot get Wi-Fi on the bus (but apparently the autopilot works, hey Fred!). We got ...
