One simple thing that rules about Posterous (how I’m posting this)- the fact that you can post by email. So very useful when piggybacking on a poor frenchperson’s intermittent NETGEAR wifi connection.
So yes, I’m pretty tired after a long day of travelling, but happy to be in France. Went down to the Louvre and surrounding area after we got here, just a bit of exploring, then tea, and back.
My big plan is for tomorrow – intention is to do the Cimetiére du Montparnasse (definitely have to find Simone De Beauvoir) then the Eiffel Tower (because you have to really, don’t you?) and then Musée d’Orsay (I’m an impresssion/expressionist kind of gal) before lunch in the Jardin des Tuileries, Notre Dame, and if time permits, the Musée Picasso… Probably impossible, but worth a go.
Weather was pretty changeable here, warm breeze, showers etc. I am consoled by the fact that by the look of Twitter, it’s probably raining more in England.
