Happy New Year to you!
What have we been up to?
We visited the Eiffel Tower.
The gorgeous Art Nouveau building at 29 Ave Rapp.
We then went shopping at the famous Rue Cler for our New Years Eve repast:
Yum! We also had lunch on Rue Cler at the Cafe Central.
In the afternoon we visited the Pere Lachaise Cemetery:
Oscar Wilde’s tomb.
In the evening we ate our Rue Cler supplies and had some champagne! Happy New Year! We had been thinking about joining the crowds somewhere but found that we were comfortable enough at ‘home’ – the thought of going out into sub-zero temperatures didn’t appeal!
This morning we did our Montmartre walk:
There was a great wool shop I though Frogdancer would like.
The only remaining vineyard in Paris:
The famous Au Lapin Agile:
Then we travelled to the other side of Paris to visit the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg:
The Palais du Luxembourg, the home of the French Senate:
Tomorrow we return to London after our week in Paris.
