... Lagerfeld, and Prada. It looks like orange is the new black in Paris.
Video Girl and Battery Boy then walked up to Forge de Laguiole and purchased a butter knife similar to one they saw at Extarabri restaurant in Spain. It stands up on the table on its base. Video Girl is quite excited as it will be very easy to grab off the table and slather on some butter.
They then returned to the apartment for a short break ...
... results. More about this fascination with people later.
Our visit to the Luxembourg Gardens (Jardin du Luxembourg) started with a surprise...French people jogging. Generally there are no signs of people that work out. No one has muscles, no sweat, no water bottles, no tank tops. But here they are, the able bodied of Paris, fashionably dressed in lycra and bounding through the forested pathways ...
... complete opposite of paris! We both agreed. Such a contrast from what surrounds the seine - buildings more than 100, 200 even 400 years old. Paul and I spent a good couple of hours in la defense, looking at the sculptures and the giant towering modern buildings that surrounded us. We walked up the stairs right into the giant square which we realised contained more offices. We walked straight through it and on the other side looked out to a view over north paris. ...

... out over the city. And it houses one of my favorite collections of art, which takes you from the academic period of the early 19th century, through the revolution of Realism to Impressionism and then through the various post-impressionistic strategies that laid the foundation for high modernism. It's hard not to really get that whole story as you walk through the Orsay. And Emma, I think, really got it. Up in the long hall ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsWelcome Hotel Paris
We stayed in the Welcome Hotel in St. Germain, Paris in November 2007 on the recommendation of a friend who'd stayed here a few years back. The hotel is right on the corner of Rue St. Germain and Rue de Seine though the entrance is on Rue de Seine. It's very close to several Metro stops. The hotel has a variety of room types, doubles, twins and singles most with either a tub or shower. Ours had a small shower in the corner of the small bathroom. Rooms are not large but adequate. The elevator is the smallest one ever, room for two people standing behind each other but if you have a large suitcase it will only fit one.
We didn't have breakfast in the hotel because there are lots of cafes and bakeries in the area. The restaurant right beside the hotel is good and walking back towards the Seine, you'll find lots of places to eat.
There's no air conditioning so it might be quite warm in summer. Noisy outside on Bl. St. Germain but closed windows were ok to keep the edge off the noise. Rates were pretty reasonable, about 100 euros for a double/twin or a bit more for a slightly larger room. I'd recommend it for it's location and value. Hotel room was clean and the staff were good. Some rooms are accessed by a couple of steps so ask if you have mobility issues.
