Wolfgang says Andrea was in charge of the weather in Paris. This is not normal May weather in Europe, but our apartment has good heating and nice hot showers. Dave thinks we should have gotten weather insurance. But we are in Paris!
What is the first thing you should do in Paris after a 14-hour train ride? Climb up to Sacre Coeur to take a photo of the Eiffel Tower!
The walk was all uphill from our apartment in the 17th arrondisement to Sacre Coeur. It rained a bit, but we made it.
Yesterday was a holiday in both Germany and France, so we weren't alone at the top.
We passed a living living statue... or maybe he was just cold.
It was packed inside the Sacre Coeur because it was a religious holiday. We sat down inside to enjoy the windows and architecture (and get out of the rain). Dave fell asleep, so we woke him up and walked down the hill to go back to the train station to meet Andrea.
The walk down was quite lovely through a wooded area with flowers.
Later I'll post some photos from the food walk Dave and I took today.
