The walk up the steps was uneventful and the views stunning. Then we tried to see the Deportation Memorial commemorating the Nazi tragedy in France but it was closed so we headed back to the hotel to meet my college friend and sorority sister Staci who hopped on the Eurostar from London to join us for the weekend. We had a quick lunch and then went to Saint Chapelle, which was built in 1248 by Louis IX to house Christ's purposed Crown of Thorns and other important relics
We had dinner and a major view at the top of the Pompidou at the restaurant called George. I'm sure you know the place....model type wait staff, modern design and view to die for...and delicious food. Our most spectacular dining experience to date in France. Wandered back through the streets of Le Marais, enjoyed an expertly presented gelato cone and collapsed into bed before the clock struck midnight.
