Paris on Steroids (Day 3)
Day 3! A lazy start with our staple Coffee and Croissants for breakfast. Don’t think we could ever get sick of them, especially at 1.50 Euro’s! No queue at Louvre at 9:30am on a Saturday morning. These Parisiens are slow starters! We sampled some of what the Louvre has to offer. First off was a history lesson on the Louvre, followed by viewing Napoleon III Apartments, then a not to be missed Mona Lisa.
We then enjoyed lunch in a traditional working class restaurant called Brassier Chartier. Thierry would be proud of our waitress. She refused to take our order for food that wasn’t traditional French! So French food it was!
After lunch we headed off to Opera Garnier and picked up an English speaking tour (It’s the only way to do it).
We took in plenty more Paris landmarks before literally staggering back to the Hotel with a takeaway Coffee and Gelato from a nearby store. We arrived back after 9:00pm! No thanks to me getting us lost and using maps on my mobile phone that pointed the wrong way! (We really must be upside down back home). Cost us an extra 5km and a grumpy wife!
