... is way bigger than the one in Vegas!"
We took a cruise to learn some of the sights around Paris, but the narrative was very sparse and before we knew it - Jason was sleeping and Amy was bored :)
We finally got back to the hotel completely exhausted and took a nap. After waking up we decided to stay close to the hotel and went to the corner cafe. Jason had foie gras and Amy had Terrine. Unfortunately, Jason's foie gras was pate and Amy was not a fan of Terrine ...

On the way home we happened on evening vespers at Victor Hugo church and enjoyed listening to the nuns in full white habits chanting. I stayed until the end but Denys went back early as we were to be meeting up with our fellow dining mates and to be sharing a cab with them. ...
... enjoy the works of VanGogh and Renoir, it was time to shop until we dropped. With Margeaux's keen fashion sense, I wasn't about to let the opportunity to shop with her go by.
First stop: Abercrombie & Fitch. Even if you despise the brand due to it’s exorbitant prices or the fact that their CEO made some unpopular comments recently, the Paris location is something to be seen. I had walked by it the day earlier without realizing it ...
