Today is Sunday, 3 May and we’re getting ready to leave Belgium. But I’ve got a little time to try and catch up. Six days ago, we spent a full day in Paris. So going back 6 days…
Monday, 27 April: We have easy access to the RER C from our hotel in Gennevilliers which takes us directly to the Tour Eiffel. A lot of walking follows – but walking through Paris is a lot of fun. The architecture, shops and people are fascinating.
Our first destination this Morning is the Louvre museum. And it is huge. I mean overwhelming. But we picked the highlights we wanted to see and power walked it.
I loved this work.
And then we had lunch in the nearby gardens. Croc monseurs all around.
In the Luxembourg Gardens, (mostly) boys played with sailboats that they steered with sticks. I think they could set the sails and then give the boats a push. The boats tacked and sailed down-wind. The boats were not motorized or remotely controlled. Very cool.
Up next – two days in Normandy.
