Stories from the Trip...

Thursday we left the hotel early and walked through the Ile de la Cite and over to the Ile St. Louis.

We had lunch at a great little cafe,

where I got the best "club" sandwich, which in France has hard boiled egg and no bacon, but toast and ham were involved so I was happy.

We then headed over to the Marais... and the Musee Carnavalet. Then we went to the Place des Vosages, which according to the guidebooks is one of the "most beautiful squares in Paris"... unfortunately I'd have to disagree with that, I think the Jardin de Palais Royal has it beat easily, but to each his own. After the Place, we walked to the Palais in order to hit up Naxos, the soldier and toy shop to pick up Tintin goodies for the Dad. From there we walked to Cafe Verlet on the Rue St. Honore. Never stopping, we then headed over to Fauchon and Au Nain Bleu at the Place de la Madeline. At Fauchon we scored wonderful tea sandwiches (so good that we actually went back for more on Saturday)...
