Day four

We continue to marche through Paris. Although at first glance it might seem everything looks the same, there is amazing variety and detail in these buildings. I could do this everyday for months!

Petting koi fish at L’Aquarium de Paris. This was a beautiful aquarium with wonderfully designed environments for the fish and sea life. A nice respite from the maddening crowds of the typical tourist attractions.

Well I flooded the salle de bain again. Fucking French fucking shower bullshit. La femme de chambre is probably wondering wtf is going on with the dripping wet towels and mats.

C’est la vie!

Le Stupide

What were we thinking? Going to la Tour Eiffel on a Saturday of a three-day Easter holiday weekend. The lines were out le ass! (We will return after the holiday or take a meal at Jules Verne.) Instead we walked through the park, sat on a bench and enjoyed the sun and a snack before the scheduled 3:00 rain (which arrived exactly on time).

Then we trekked over to Rue Faubourg St Honoré and did some important shopping. There is a jacket I’ve needed since I saw it in a magazine, but none of the shops in the US had it yet. I emailed Paris last week and they said “Oui, we have it for you!” It wasn’t on the sales floor yet because it’s from the summer collection. I’m so excited to get it first!

Finished up with an espresso/pastry stop at Bread and Roses and a macaroon pick-up at Ladurée. Brrr, it got chilly suddenly and we headed back to l’hôtel.
