Paris is for lovers


If life were perfect then every day would start out like this.

Last night we went on a river dinner cruise with Bateaux-Mouches up and down the Seine (who wouldn’t want to take a night cruise on the Seine with this charming fellow? 

It was marvelous.  Pricey?  Yeah.  But the food was decent, the dessert was divine, and they sure served up a plenty of champagne and wine and worldclass once-in-a-lifetime views to make it worth every penny. 

 During the day we meandered up and down the Seine and finally landed in the Louvre.  We avoided the lines by heeding Rick Steve’s advice and buying our Paris Museum Passes at Orsay. 

Today woke us up bright and sunny (finally!).  We’re off to Versailles.  Bonjour, Paris!

  1. >Fabulous! The thing I remember about Versailles was that Marie Antoinette played "shepherdess" with her ladies in waiting. In light of what was headed down the boulevard of her future, it was not, perhaps, the most sensitive or savvy political move.Imagine Michelle Obama trying "playing" at being a pig farmer's wife, engaging in dress up as an alluring little swinherd, on the White House lawn.
