This took us through some quite slummy areas of Paris, covered in graffiti - it was interesting to see a different side of Paris (though three years ago, I got lost in a suburb just like that, but that's another story). You can always see the worst parts of a city from a train. Decided to spend the afternoon at the Grevin wax museum. I hadn't been there before, so it was an interesting surprise to discover that ...

Another very, very late night, but we had a another great day!!
After Paris we will definitely have to slow ...
