Our first real french coffee waiting for Gretchen in the airport. French phrase book in hand what a tourist.
Finally we are here. The first part of the trip a 7and a half hour flight to Kuala Lumpar and then 18 hour layover before another 12 and half hour flight to Paris. We arrived at about 6.30am and waited for Gretchen to arrive at 9am, really exciting to see her again. Then the bus trip to the Opera Paris wow life changing, hysterical and seriously I was waiting for the candid camera guys to jump out when the bus driver jumped out of the bus and began to move road blockades so he could drive down the street. Then he was stuck between a fire truck and someones car, so out he hops and begins to move parts of the fire truck that were in his way, I am not kidding, Everyone on the bus was in hysterics. We hopped off the bus in one piece and on to the metro then to our hotel. The Hotel Duquesne right at the end of the park at the Eifelle Tower. We put our bags up stairs and went in search of food and drink and when we looked up this is what we saw right from the front door of our hotel.
Oui Oui this is my front yard for the next few days how wonderful is that!!!!
Lunch, Croque Monnsuier and some nice red wine it just doesn't get much better than this.
This is the sunrise over the Ukraine as we woke this morning wow this is a beautiful world.
