I woke up to rain! In Paris!
It was lovely!
I called the airline and my luggage had arrived in Paris, now they were waiting for a courier to pick it up and deliver it. I should get a call soon. They did call around 10am and said they would deliver between 1-6pm. Of course since we are staying at an apt I have to be here to accept it. I went out for a quick walk and stopped for my first cafe creme!
It was so delicious!
A mere 4 Euros....yikes! I don't spend that kind of money on coffee...except while I'm in Paris!
I then did a little shopping and bought a new shirt, jeans and scarf. My trip insurance will cover it since I was without my luggage for over 6 hours.
As I was walking back to our apt this was the view of the Eiffel Tower from Rue Saint Dominique!
We waited and waited and finally the luggage was delivered around 4:30pm!
Way to waste half a day in Paris, grrr!
But I have my luggage!
The rain had stopped so we decided to take a walk over to the Eiffel Tower to check it out from the ground!
I can't begin to explain just how large this is! Amazing! It was cloudy but there were still long lines to go up in the tower. We just walked around and enjoyed being that close to the tower!
Playing tourist. This photo was taken with J's camera phone
A welcome in two languages!
My cousin Joletta!
This was my favorite photo of the day!
Just the interesting architecture and it's of the Eiffel Tower and I'm looking at it with my own two eyes.
We walked back towards our apt feeling like we really are in Paris!
We stopped for dinner at
Bistro St Dominique
I had steak with Bearnaise sauce, mashed potatoes and haricot verts(green beans). Of course bread and
We walked the few blocks back to our apt and called it a night!
I saw the Eiffel Tower up close and got my suitcase...not a bad day!
