My second blog entry for the day – have to catch up so I can rave about Paris!
|About 1/8th of the armoury collection at Cheverny|
We left the comfort of our lovely hotel in Amboise and drove towards Paris. For a stop along the way we visited Cheverny, a beautifully furnished chateau that is still being lived in by the original family. It had an amazing collection of armoury including for a 4 year old, and only one flight of stairs.
Then a lunch stop at an interestingly named place (see pics).
We dropped the car at Orly airport and then took the train and subway (with our luggage) into the Marais. It was very hot, and even hotter and stuffy on the trains. It was great to get to our B&B that is at least as good as the photos on the net.
We had a walk to the Seine and a Moët to toast me getting to Paris at last! Then ‘home’ to cool off before out again for dinner. After dinner we walked over a number of bridges and down to the Notre Dame where there was a service (pre-Pentecost). On the way back, I caught a minute glimpse of the Eiffel Tower.
The heat is expected to stay for quite a few more days, possibly all of the week. We will have to buy more summer clothes as we hadn’t expected this – what a shame J
