Weather Overcast to sunny skies
Just some general shots of Paris via the tour bus. Took me a while to find
the stop for the tour. For an extra 2€ I got the two day pass, so I'll have
something to do on Christmas day. Not sure about the weather though. Some of the
other pictures are from my hotel window.
I had to switch rooms after the first night. The room was a dump and smelled like
smoke and incense. I was changed to room 55, which has a small view of the Eiffel
Tower (Tour Eiffel). My new room is bigger and better so far... In one of the pictures you'll see my Parisian icebox, the window planter, which kept my
beer cold enough. I did some grocery shopping the last two days.I did notice that the key to the room that was better was a bit
more worn. Hmm...something to consider as it appears that first room, #54, was terrible.
I'll add comments to each picture as time goes along. There are also video shots of
various things as well. I'll post those later when I return to London as I'll have
a faster Internet connection.
P.S. I'm glad I know a little French. It goes a long way.
