Why is it that every time we step outdoors it rains? Well, it's not really that bad. We made it to Paris today despite the long delays in the famous (infamous?) embouteillages. We were due to stop in Rouen for lunch but with the delays the coach driver didn't think it'd be possible. So, instead, we pounded on to Paris. I'm texting this from the Beateau Mouche where we are currently making it through a reasonably bright spell. Let's cross our fingers it lasts.
The Seine is beautiful and gives an amazing first image of Paris. The Louvre (of Da Vinci Code fame - by the way, what's the film like?), the sister museum - the musée d'Orsay, the expensive appartments of the Ile St Louis... This boat trip is clearly the way to get to know Paris.
Sorry for the lack of posts in this last little while. Things have been very busy. But tomorrow is the big day of visits in Paris (including one to the world's biggest perfume shop on the Champs Elysée). It's also tomorrow that we might get a chance to spy the Mona Lisa. It's a shame they couldn't bring out the film before we had gone, and we might have been able to reinact the opening scenes!
Tant pis! Au revoir pour le moment. Plus de reportages plus tard!
