Bonjour De Paris

After what seemed like an eternity, we finally arrived yesterday in Paris!

Our flight left a bit after 4:00PM from Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon. We arrived in Paris Sunday around noon and finally arrived at our hotel. After getting settled we walked around a bit and went to dinner at a restaurant nearby called Indiana Cafe. They had a random assortment of food including Tex-Mex and Asian cuisines. I ordered a glass of wine to start.

I ordered the Chicken Curry.

It was just ok.  Everyone else enjoyed their random food so that was good.

I was SO happy to finally go to bed last night. It was wonderful.

What was also wonderful was the Starbucks coffee that my husband picked up for me this morning.

Along with a Larabar, it made a nice breakfast in bed. We got ready and went on both a double-decker red bus tour as well as a boat tour or Paris. I have been to Paris in 20 years and I was reminded of how beautiful the city is!

After our touring, we stopped at Pizza Vesuvio on the Champs Elysees for lunch. More wine. :)

It was the perfect lunch sitting outside in the cafe’s patio area.

I did a bit of walking around after lunch while everyone went back to the hotel. I did visit the Louis Vuitton 7-story flagship store on my travels. It was quite enjoyable. I may have to go back. :)
