1: pond boats in Luxembourg Garden 20 secs
Once our bike trip finished up, we said goodbye to our friends and guides, and returned to Paris by the train. Little did the kids know that their Dad and I were looking to forward to "touring " them all over the city! They followed us around like the obedient children they are! The look on their faces tells you that they had periods of extreme "fatique"!
Even I had visions of sitting in Luxembourg Garden all day reading and snacking, but Keith really did have a "plan" to see the city.
Took a quick trip out to the flea market, headed up the Champs-Elysees to the Arch then over to the Eiffel Tower. Katie was very happy to find a Starbucks for much needed caffine! Our last evening we found a little sidewalk restaurant in the Latin Quarter, with a fiesty waitress who repremanded us for not learning French! She did graciously help us with the menu, though.
Just a couple of nights stay, and we were headed back to our temporary home in Poland!
