Our last day in Paris before leaving for the river barge, there was a lot of rain forecasted. Our captain, Tim, was not scheduled to pick us up until 2:00, so we had to find something to do until then. The travel book mentioned something called Paris Story, a short movie exhibition of the history of Paris, located near the old opera house.

The weather was also pretty dull, overcast and rainy so we skipped that, from the balcony area we could see a decent amount of them.
