This Is Way More Fun

B arrived as planned on Sunday evening, although British Airways did everything in its power to screw up her London - Paris hop. My first thought on seeing her was "my dear lord but she is pretty..."

Since then, we've been running around town. We did the walking tour of the islands and the Latin Quarter yesterday, came back to the apartment to de-freeze, then back out for a hike to the BNF and back. Using the power of technology, we watched the first few episodes of season 3 of Top Chef whilst munching on bread + cheese + charcuterie. Today we hit the Musée D'Orsay, Jardin de Luxembourg, and more Latin Quarter walking. Right now, we are on the wine and just got back from taking nighttime photos of Notre Dame and its big-ass Christmas Tree.

More the point?! Tomorrow, we are off to Mont Saint Michel, which promises to be highly photogenic so long as we manage to find the right bus once we get to Rennes via TGV. In the meantime, please to be referencing my flickr site for a few shots.

awww you two look so happy. :-)
Enjoy Mont St Michel, albeit the cold weather this time of year!
And enjoy a few more french pastries before coming back here, OK? Tartes aux fraises and pain au chocolats just aren't the same outside of France.

PS Christmas time is a good time to go to Galaries Lafayette and admire the pretty decorations. I also have fond recollections of the parks have lights and decorations as well... and the bouche noels in the boulangerie windows!
