Road to RomeMay 30, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 18 °C
Wednesday... left at 8 o’clock for Eiffel Tower. Had a local guide went to second level, not all the way up but it was an impressive skyline. John and I walked down! Likely the oldest people on the bus so we had to prove we could keep up, very few other people did that! Then to Notre Dame ..huge and dark. Beautiful stained glass windows and statues. Statues told stories as most people didn’t read at the time it was built.
Then rode on bus to a part of Paris where people buy fresh foods and lots of cafes. A local foodie took a small group of us to real bakery up at 3 AM to make bread for day, fruit store for strawberries, then for formage, all kinds of cheeses. We stood in street and took hunks of bread, thinly sliced ham, and Brie, goat, and 2 other kinds of cheese. I enjoyed this very much.
John and I are not going with others to Moulin Rouge, it doesn’t interest us so will get a bite with another couple at a cafe beside hotel.Read more
