We’re HERE! We drove in from Lyon yesterday, returned the rental car, and checked in to our hotel just in time to head out to dinner. (Only to find there had been a mixup with our reservation. Fortunately we weren’t far from one of our favorite Paris restaurants, Pirouette, and they were able to seat us.)
We’re on an upper floor on a small street, so no panoramic room view this time. But this will do nicely!
Walking back to our hotel after dinner, I was able to catch some of that gorgeous Paris dusk, known as l’heure bleue.
The weather is lovely, not too warm, and there’s not much rain in the forecast, at least through the weekend. Today we have a photography lesson in the afternoon! Yes, that’s why I brought my DLSR camera. Paris is always photogenic, but I hope to improve my skills and share even better photos with you.
We haven’t done a lot of shopping on this trip so far, but while in Lyon I did pick up a pair of Mephisto wedge sandals…
I find that some of my outfits just look better with a little bit of heel, and some European brands like Mephisto cost much less here. Wore these here in Paris last night and they are comfortable and stable, even on cobblestones!
Paris awaits…à bientôt!
