Gina and I safely made it to Paris and are having a good time. I tried to post an entry from the hotel when we arrived but for some reason it did not work.
Our first night here we managed to get tickets to a soccer game. The local team Paris St. Germain was playing Nancy in the 1/8 finals of the Championant de la Ligue which is like the french club championship. PSG won 2-0 in a not so exciting game.
Thursday we did our bike tour of the city showing us some of the less traveled areas of the city. After the tour we spent the afternoon trying to aquire some clothing to match both the weather and the local fashion....spent too much money.
Friday we walked more than in Madagascar when we visited the Louvre and the Musee D'Orsey, checking out what they had to offer. Saturday we went to Notre Dame, St. Chapelle and the Modern art museum. It is amazing what they call art these days.
Yesterday we had a busy day visiting the Parthenon, the Conciergerie, the money museum, Place de la Concorde, the Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe and walked over to the Eiffel Tower at night. Today we went up the tower in the morning and spent the rest of the day making our way back to our hotel by foot, shopping along the way.
Tomorrow we plan on walking through Montmartre, the neighborhood around our hotel and packing for our departure wednesday morning. We now arrive at 10:05 pm on wednesday night in fort mac.
