Our first night sleeping in Paris and the dreaded jet lag. On Sunday night our group took over “God Save the Kitchen“ restaurant for dinner. A five course dinner was consumed with wine over nearly three hours. One waitress handled all us all…35…without a hitch. What a professional. We had a choice between sea bream or chicken. Everyone was happy with their choice.
Off we went to our room by 10 pm we crashed! A long day. We both woke up at 3 am, the dreaded jet lag! It didn’t last long and by 4 am we were back in La La Land. Our alarm told us it was 7 am and a quick shower we were off to our buffet breakfast. Those French know how to cook. Fresh croissants with eggs and every imaginable breakfast meats, cereals etc.
It was raining out most of the morning including when we boarded the bus heading for our four hour “drive by” tour of Paris. It was a great overview of what is available to see. It would take us about a year to see half if it. Here are some photo’s we took on the tour.
We arrived back to our hotel and headed to the bank, to the bakery, and to the grocery store in that order. We brought back a wonderful hot ham and cheese pannini for lunch. Then yep you guessed it, a two hour nap.
We cooked a delicious dinner in our minni-kitchen in our room and now are relaxing as we will be head out early in the morning to Versailles and in the late afternoon a walking tour of Monte Marte which is a hill that gives one of the best views of Paris. Great first real day in Paris.
