We’re not in “Kansas” anymore…

Last night was the first night I slept right through.  Jet-lag be gone!  *knocks on wood and gives a big cheer*
We haven’t done much besides explore.  Every day we’ve walked and walked and walked – Margaret and I have the sore feet to prove it.  The neighborhood my apartment is in is wonderful!  There are so many stores and restaurants/cafes around here I’ll never be at a loss.  Every corner you turn there is more and more to see.
Yesterday we actually made plans to do something specific.  We met at Notre Dame for mass.  Glad I did it.  (Dear lady with the loud camera,  Mass is not the time to take pictures with your loud camera – respect please!)  After mass Margaret and I did some more wandering – since we’ve become so good at it.  Had lunch at a café – my first Croque Monsieur of this trip was memorable.
Here are a few random photos taken since our arrival.

So glad you made it and I can't wait to join you. I leave on Thursday. Yey! Did you buy any nail polish yet, lol?
It's supposed to rain there on Friday and we had a big afternoon of walking planned ... wonder how my tour guide will handle that. Meanwhile, I'm bracing myself for those cool evenings ... we're still have 80 F days here. I won't be able to read a lot of your blog because I'll be offline for a while, but I plan to check back when I return to "compare notes." I'll be home and you'll still be in Paris, lucky you!

I love trips where we don't have things planned constantly. Hope you are enjoying it and thanks for sharing it with us.
