i’m back from a great weekend in beautiful paris. my first ever trip there. stayed at the hip hotel mayet, near the st germain district. thanks to sweet carolyn for making all the arrangements. we did a lot in the four days we were there including visits to the eiffel tower, the louvre, musee d’orsay, notre dame cathedral, la sainte chapelle, le sacre coeur, montmartre, george pompidou centre, and the arc de triomphe. had a cafe espresso at the historic Les Deux Magots, and generally couldn’t stop eating. had some delicious french onion soup, escargot, quiches, chocolat, crepes, croques, wine, and various pastries and baguettes. contrary to the stereotype, the people were even pretty nice. i’m definitely going to return.
