errands. in Paris!
yes we had some running around to do. tax receipts to get straight, gifts to finalize and purchase and the luggage situation to work out.
breakfast on the champs élysées put us in good position to hit the ground running at Louis Vuitton when they opened. next a stop in few sport stores, then home to drop off “the surprise goods”.
once we were out again it was short
lived. a rosary for M, the opera district for a “New York” bar that was closed so another sufficed. I had run out of steam and once back at home, I slept the night away.
wait…. it was New Year’s Eve! there was a show at the Eiffel Tower that had to be taken in!! while I did sleep for a few hours – at 10:30 we went to a local restaurant for dinner and champagne. took a short walk to the park in Passey where we watched the festivities with a group from Germany. they were a lot of fun, and people from all around the globe crowded the streets to celebrate. tons of baby strollers jammed the sidewalks, and cars jammed the streets.
the light show was beautiful – no fireworks though. Paris stopped fireworks a few years ago. we walked home giving and receiving Bonne Annèe’s to everyone. it was a great was to begin two thousand fourteen.
happy new year!!
