Busy Day in Paris
Well we had a very busy day today, but it was fun. We started with our beautiful hotel breakfast of baguette, croissant, hot choc and juice and we were out of the hotel before light (ie 8am). we were in the queue for the Louvre by 8:15 for a 9am opening. We were not the first there but we were not far down the line. We had bought tickets at FNAC so we went straight in. We enjoyed the sculptures, Egypt, Greece, of course the Mona Lisa and a general wander around. When we came out at about 11:30 the queue to get in was very long so the early start was good. We moved on to Notre Dame and enjoyed a boulangerie lunch while standing in the queue which was long but due to the free entry, moved very fast. Then we went to the Musee d'armee which is at the same site as Napoleons tomb. The boys really enjoyed this and it was fun to watch them, which was good because I can take or leave ancient arms and armor! We also went to see napoleons tomb. Tonight we are going next door to a restaurant that serves crab with hammers, gives you an apron and covers the tables in paper. That should round off a full but interesting day.
