Arrived in Paris today OMG and my hotel is about a 20minute walk from the Eiffel Tower....it is so much bigger than I ever imagined. I wallked around the base and surrounding areas today along with about a million other people...well not quite but there was a lot. Across the River Seine from the Eiffel Tower is a beautiful area called Palais De Challott, magnificent old building, statues, fountains, lawns and an old fashioned Carousel absolutely beautiful!! Wanting to go for a cruise on the Seine, They also have a hop on hop off bus here as well which I will use as it is a great way of getting around to see everything and to get your bearings as to where everything is. The hotel is nice,staff friendly, my room is small (enough room for me and my suitcase)but it is comfortable and hey I sleep and shower here so it doesn'tneed to be big.
I was wanting to eat French for tea but had to settle for Lebanese, tomorrow I will find a french restaurant...I did walk past a patisserie todat and saw some yummy food scrumptious looking custard slice pastrys etc etc.It is 9.30pm here and only just starting to get dark.
