April 26th, 2010

Today we were dedicated tourists.  We started off with the Louvre, a former palace turned museum.  From there we walked all over Paris, visiting the famed shopping district on the Champs Elysee, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower.  The Eiffel Tower might be my favorite place in Paris, especially when they light it up at night.

We ate lunch at a creperie.  I had a crepe with ham and cheese.  They were huge, like giant quesadillas, and quite filling.  For dinner we opted for a classic French meal at a French restaurant.  Onion soup, a really good filet of salmon...The meals are mom's favorite part, I think, and so far France has been a big success on that front.

We also made arrangements at the local Avis for a car rental for the next day, though Mom wasn't thrilled about that.  Driving through Brussels was harrowing enough that she wasn't looking forward to trying it again, but we were determined.
