Today we walked about Paris.....we headed down the Champs-Elysees towards the Place de la Concorde and the L'Obelisque and the Jardin Des Tuileries. We then made our way to the Place Vendome and La Colonne before continuing on to The Palais Royal and the Musee Louvre once more. We didn't go in again but continued along down Rue de Rivoli window shopping and where we saw "face art" on an apartment building called "Robert". We came upon Place de Chatelet where we stopped for lunch and had sushi at a restaurant called Japkora which was very good and reasonably priced. We then crossed the Pont Au Change to the Island Cite and once again cast our gaze on Notre Dame Cathedral before heading past the Palais de Justice then over the Pont Neuf to the Left Bank on our way to see the dome of the Institute De France on the Quai de Conti. We wandered back along the River Siene on Quai St. Michel stopping to see the Fountain at Boulevard Saint Michel and "La'juenese" and "The Great Canadian Pub" on Quai de Montebello before stopping in at Eglise Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre Cathedral on Rue Monge. The sky had been cloudy all day and we got a sudden downpour at 5:00 PM so we ducked into a pub called "Le Who's Bar" and had a drink and listened to some music videos. After the rain stopped we made our way thru some nifty side streets back to Boulevard Saint Michel. We had been walking for about six out of the last eight hours and so we decided to catch the Metro and head back to the Champs-Elysees where we stopped in at the Loius Vuitton store. It was amazing to watch the people shopping and the goods fly out of the store in the company of young students and others foreign tourists who seemed to have a lot of disposable income. We decided we would refrain from purchasing anything otherwise we might have had to come home......we returned to our room at the Hotel Marceau Champs-Elysees to wait to see what tomorrow will bring.....
