london and paris

Jump to last reply

At the end of March we are visiting our younger son in London, where he's in school for a year. We stay 3 nights at the Crescent Hotel.

Then the three of us take the Eurostar to Paris, where we rent an apartment of friend of a friend which is 67 sq meters and has little balconies and an old fashioned elevator. It looks very nice, and is a 15 minute walk to the Seine and 10 minutes to the Champs de Mars and the Eiffel Tower. The owner says metro lines 6, 8 and 10 and bus lines 42 and 80 are within 3 blocks. She has a cell phone we can use. I'm not sure if the apt is on rue du theatre or rue cler. All this will become clearer in time.

Our older son is also joining us in Paris, on spring break from his teaching job in denver. Next year he says he wants to teach english in vietnam. Its not cheap being parents of runaway bunnies.

I've been to both London and Paris once so II can distinguish Big Ben from the Eiffel Tower. We also have guidebooks from the library. I figure our son can help us see stuff in London, but Paris is a little intimidating. We wanted to see a soccer game in Paris but there aren't any when we're there (3/29 -4/5). I don't know what a tootsie roll refers to, or what Berthillon is, but we're looking forward to the Louvre being deserted an hour before closing.

It's a little early to be asking for suggestions, but some of you may know how much I need good suggestions. I'm not a troll, so don't do that omaha bridge thing.
