It's 8:30, and we just returned to our apartment. The sun is setting on our third day in Paris. And what a day it was.
We slept in this morning and got a late start, but that hardly slowed us down. Our first stop was a little bakery on our way to the Arch de Triomphe. We each picked out a pastry of our choice, and we devoured them as we sat at the tables on the side walk. We caught the bus to the Louvre and saw the most famous peace of art in the world, the Mona Lisa. Then we were off to the Eiffel Tower and took the stairs to the second level ... 700 stairs up, but who's counting. Then we continued to the monument in the center of the city of lights. We caught the Big Bus tour to the Notre Dame Cathedral. Where we investigated this spectacular cathedral in the center of the city. All of us ate lunch while sitting on a bench in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral and then went to the see the Saint Chapelle stain glass church ... more stairs but phenomenal. There was not quite that many stairs at the Arch de Triomphe, but we went up all of them to go see the views. Finally, when we got back to our apartment it was 8:30. We were exhausted from all the walking. Good thing that dinner was only a rock throw from Mercicca's.
We only just arrived back from a Jewish place where I was the only man not wearing a Kipa (cap like a small black dome worn on the back of the head by Jewish men), such as it was. We were starving, and the food tasted heavenly.
Now we are back at the apartment and Mom is figuring out how we are going to get to Versailles tomorrow. We may be walking... I better save my energy.
