The wedding was beautiful. At least I think so.
And now we’re in Paris. We got here early this morning, and have been busy most of the day. Our flight out of Lexington was delayed (of course) but we made the flight out of Newark without any problem, and got in to Paris on time. However, the bus drivers are on strike, so it took us about an hour to get to the gate. From there, though, the ride to the hotel was quick and painless.
We’re staying at a delightful little place just off of Place de Clichy. The room is only slightly larger than the bed, but that’s plenty large enough. There’s a wonderful view of the courtyard out the window, and breakfast will be in the courtyard in the morning, if it’s not raining.
It rained most of today, but not hard enough to dissuade us from traipsing around Paris. We walked up to Sacre Cour, and then after dinner at Bistro Melrose, we took the metro down to Champs Elysees, and from there walked to the Eiffel Tower. Not keeping track of time, we managed to miss the last train back, and just arrived back by cab, tired and ready to get some sleep.
Tomorrow, we’re going to the Louvre, and perhaps to Musee D’Orsay. Nothing else firmly planned. We figure it’s better to enjoy a few things, and perhaps have time for other things, than to be overbooked and stressed out about schedules.
I’ve posted some photos on Flickr, and will post more there as they get put on the computer. I haven’t taken quite as many as I expected, simply because the batteries aren’t holding up very well. But we’re here for a few more days, so I imagine there will be one or two good ones in that time.
