Paris

Ooh la la

overcast 18 °C

Dear all
Have hit Paris. OMG. What a shock to the senses. Surrounded by so much history and so much to see in such a short time. Got conned by a little old fella at the train station. Although in reality he did us a favour and took us to where taxi departed from (for 10euros). His way of making a living and I just had to laugh really. Have been to Champs Elysee and Tuileries Gardens and outside the Louvre. Am in the Latin Quarter at the moment.

Ron,s going to add something in now cos I,m sure your all bored with my rants by now.

The hotel is fantastic. It is very historic and people like Baudelaire, Wagner and Oscar Wilde frequented it in the past. The view from our bedroom window is a vision of the Seine looking straight across at the Louvre. The Quai de Voltaire that the hotel is in runs along the Seine and every shop is full of beautiful things- furniture, art, sculpture and antiques. Every direction that you look in is a beautiful vista of magnificent architecture and well known landmarks. Note for Joy - almost every restaurant menu we have looked at in restarants near to the hotel have duck on the menu. I think that is what I will be having tonight. Prices are surprisingly good - about the equivalent of 30 dollars Aus. Cant wait for what sights tomorrow brings. Over to Bryan.

OK all. will put some more photos on tomorrow. Catcha later.

B and Ron

Hi Bee and Ron, sounds like you are having the best time and have seen so much already. I wish I was with you both. Just to give you a quick update from home - GG has Joshica today and is doing well with her arm and Josh is getting a merit certificate at assembly next week. Missing you both have fun. The Millers

Paris sounds wonderful. I am so envious. Glad you like "old" because Italy is ahead for you with history and art galore. Emailed with Chrissie today to book for Cairns at Xmas and she's so excited to only have 30 hours to go before she leaves for Italy. Looking forward to seeing Paris pics-heard so much about it but never been there. Keep having fun boys. love you ciao
