A move to the Left Bank

I successfully moved to a new address, this time in Saint-Michel on the left bank.

It is one street back from a very lively area just near Saint Michel Boulevard. My apartment is larger than the others but just as comfortable...except for the bed...feels like I am sleeping on the floor...I just keep telling myself I am sleeping in Paris!!

The day I moved I was sitting in a little cafe around the corner waiting for Fabrice to arrive and meet me at the apartment when I saw loads of people gathering at the Statue of Saint Michel...it turned out it was the meeting place for the free walking tours of Paris...so after I settled in my apartment I gathered with lots of others for a guided 3 hour walk around Paris. Most of my companions were young people staying at the hostel...aussies, kiwis, germans and americans...we had a fun tour guided by Patrick an Irishman from Dublin! I saw some areas I knew but learned some of the history attached to them and also ventured into some new areas as well.

It was fun chatting to all the others and then we all gathered together at a local restaurant for a meal...a very fun day to start the final part of the adventure!
