Day 3 Morning Update

Bonjour tout le monde,

I'll start off with a brief English recap of what we did yesterday. After breakfast we set off from the hotel bound for Paris. While we were there we did the following:-

visited the Basilica of Sacre Coeur and the Artists Square(Place du Tertre) on Montmartre.

had a picnic in the gardens next to the Eiffel Tower

ascended to the first floor of the Tower and had a view of the Paris skyline from there

enjoyed a boat tour down the Seine, which gave information on the various landmarks surrounding the river.

Today the plan is to head off around 10am Paris time and, in the morning, visit the oldest section of Paris, L' Ile de la Cite where Notre Dame is situated. We then visit the famous Musee d'Orsee in the afternoon and, after enjoying dinner at a Paris restaurant, the driver is taking us on a coach tour of Paris at night.

We will be back with a full update, en francais et en anglais, later tonight after we return from our tour.

A bientot!

Monsieur McIntyre
