Now we are on a bus headed to Bordeaux with a stop at Chambord, a big castle along the way.
Now that we are part if the tour group, we have a bit of a schedule to follow. This morning we had breakfast at the hotel, then the tour dropped us off at the Eiffel Tower for a free day, meeting back at the Eiffel Tower at 7:00 for dinner. We went to musée d'orsay and spent a few hours there, then walked to streets a bit looking at vendor stands with art and souvenir stuff. We have been lucky with weather so far, and yesterday was mild and mainly sunny - perfect for walking around. We had lunch in a cafe in the Latin quarter, and then headed back to the Eiffel Tower with hopes of going up to the observation deck , but unfortunately the lines were very long and we --mainly Steph :) -- decided we didn't want to wait in line two hours. So we went for a coffee and then lounged about on the lawn in the sun in front of the Eiffel Tower until t was time to meet our group for dinner. After dinner most of the group went to a cabaret show, but we thought it was too expenaive (56 euros each) and went to a pub across the street with some others for beer instead.
