Paris: the sun came out

…late afternoon for our late lunch on rue Cler.

And fully sunny today. Apparently it’s been 3 weeks of bad weather here.

In the lounge in CDG airport, about to fly back (in biz). Sweet. Especially after the priority checking, emigration and security.

Paris: another rainy day

Actually the rain wasn’t bad yesterday, as the showers hit mostly during the night. But it’s cool, with a high of 21C/70F and people are dressed like it’s autumn (and it feels like it too).

We walked around a bit and enjoyed a late lunch out and about. Dinner was wine and cheese (inc. a tasty brie that makes the brie back home taste like Wonderbread in comparison) in the room.

The rain is supposed to stop late the afternoon, and the sun should come out again on Sunday in time to send us off.

Paris: fish pedicure

We both did a fish pedicure today. The fish nibble the dead skin. It feels like a tickling, weak electric current. Not allowed in Canada for hygienic reasons.

In Paris for the weekend

The service and food were significantly better on the Air France flight (biz class) yesterday.

Staying in the Marais in the 4th arrondissement. Walked to dinner at a patio table on a cute little square, followed by a long walk through the 4th and back along the Seine.

Through Place des Vosges, and past, or views of, Pompidou, Les Balled, Eiffel Tower (lit up) and Notre Dame.

Also got to see the outside of the building where Susan used to live.

And some of the tour boats on the river have floodlights (to illuminate buildings) that would put stadiums to shame.

In lounge about to fly to NAP via CDG in biz class on Air France.

Nice little food spread and open bar. Terrible wifi as it comes from the main concourse.

Coming soon: Amalfi Coast (Italy) and Paris

Leaving on Friday with Susan for the Amalfi Coast, just below Naples, Italy.
