Trip Report Reporting from Paris in the rain.

Jump to last reply

My husband and I arrived Monday am,quickly made our way through baggage claim,and our dear friend was waiting to meet us.He lives outside Paris and got up early to join in Monday am traffic to meet us.
Loaded up the car and off to our apartment in the 7th.Our home for 2 weeks.We met Jennifer who had the keys,she explained a few things and we started to do some unpacking.
Then out to explore,get some essentials for the apartment,and load our metro card.
This is our 10th visit,always swear we are going to take it easy "this time".
But there is so much to see and do,places to eat...Nothing exciting planned,as I was really trying to stay awake.Weather is humid,some sprinkles.Stopped and picked up a sandwich,some wine,had lunch on our terrace.
Then out to see our beautiful Paris.
Home early ,shower,try to sleep.
Tuesday,
Slept later than I wanted to,darn,out for a pain au chocolate
Went to Galleries Layfayette,all the food items have been moved across the street.(we haven't been here for 3 years,so I don't know when they moved it) Did I mention it's raining ?
Did a lot of walking in the rain,stopping at a cafe for a glass of bubbly.
Had dinner at cafe du marche,it was close by our apartment .
We both had confit du canard,home in the rain.
Wednesday
Slow start to the rainy am.
Decided to put off going to the d'Orsay until Thursday. We always enjoy lunch in their beautiful restaurant . Since we had dinner plans tonite,we will go tomorrow.
Dinner was at Bistrot les Papilles.
This was a very enjoyable meal,there is no menu,it is all pre selected by the chef. He said it changes every 2 days,we had a leek soup,cod with mashed potatoes,a cheese course,and strawberry panna cotta.
I will post pictures later ,time for bed from rainy Paris
