With the over-priced replacement charger in hand I went in search of the elusive Proménade Plantée, which is a 3km stretch of old railway track turned to gardens and is of reputed beauty and astounding colour
I did discover an interesting garden called Jardin de Reuilly, which offered many hidden nooks to relax in and was filled with summer flowers, overgrown walkways, a few statues and a wooden bridge over a lawned clearing. There was a young guy being filmed here as he performed a series of acrobatics' and martial arts' moves. I watched, captivated for a while.
I stopped at the Jardin des Plantes to stroll between some amazing flower beds and check out the Natural history museum. I was thinking about tackling it Tuesday, but this is the one day of the week that it turns out the museum is closed. It's in a grand, old building with tall glass windows which offered a sneak peek at one of the dinosaur exhibits.
I was in bed fairly early and was drifting off to sleep just after 11pm.
