When we arrived in Paris it was at night but the next day we toke a train to the Eiffel Tower! I loved the tower and didn't know it was so huge! The day after on a Sunday we wanted to go to Versailles but there was a fire near the train station so it was all blocked off. The macaroons we had were amazing. I had a caramel, mint and chocolate ones. I also had tea on Sunday that I made myself and I heated up the water too much and burnt my tongue! I felt ...

I then marched up what seemed like a 30 degree incline and ...
... items that caused some consternation at our table were the "Saint Antoine's temptation breaded and grilled foot, snout, ear and tail of pigs" (I've definitely been feeding the dog top tucker - and what drugs was St Antoine taking anyway?) and of course, the snails. In the end we ate well - French onion soup (delicious with blue smelly cheese), terrine, salmon, and Mike and I shared a massive plate of "melting lamb" which we couldn't finish, but was beautiful.
