Paris – Day 1

We landed safe and soundly earlier this morning in Paris and have completed a wonderful first day of touring! After we dropped our luggage off at the hotel, we left for our walking tour with our very knowledgable guide, Jamil. He took us first to get lunch at a nearby market where we all got to practice our French, then we took a tram and then the Metro to get to downtown Paris. We walked near the Centre Pompidou, the Hôtel de Ville, the Latin Quarter, and to Notre Dame. We had time to visit Notre Dame and the gardens behind it before walking to Flam’s where we enjoyed a delicious meal. A very sleepy group then returned to the hotel via subway, then tram. A beautiful day was enjoyed by all (with more than a few red cheeks thanks to the 20* sunshine today. Have a wonderful night! I’ll update after another full day of touring tomorrow! P.S. Brian is taking a picture so is not with the group in front of Notre Dame!
