En France, À Paris

We made it to Paris around noon today (Thursday), rather travel worn, but happy to be here. We do keep dozing off even with an after dinner espresso. It will take a few days to reset the internal clock, but at least it looks like spring here.

Our hotel is housed in one of the buildings you see in the background below.

Looks sort of posh, but check out the elevator. A little sign warns that it can hold 5 people, max. I’d be stunned if three fit inside. We tend to take the stairs, even though we’re on the 4th floor, which is equivalent to the American 5th floor, the ground floor not having a number, being called instead rez-de-chausée. Not so bad going down, but a bit of a workout going up!

    1. Haha. The best part is this morning the receptionist showed us the other, much larger and nicer elevator hiding on the other side of the stairs, so cramming two adults, three suitcases, two laptop bags, one camera bag, and one purse in the tiny one was completely unnecessary when we arrived! Probably gave the staff a good laugh though!

  1. How exciting! I’m sooooooo jealous! We always stay at the Hotel Muguet in the 7th. Lovely little hotel on a side street but near rue Cler. Can’t wait to read all about your adventures.
