A day with friends...

I awoke this morning with fingers and toes crossed that the weather would be a little better...there were glimpses of blue sky amongst the clouds...hooray!!

This last few days has been so cold and wet!

I began the day with a morning walk to get croissants, but decided to go a different way and discovered my favourite street in the area...Rue de Buci...a very quaint area with lots of lovely shops and a market feel...

I then headed up to Sacre Coeur to meet some wonderful friends, Barb and Laurie, who were travelling through Paris for the day on their way back to Oz...

They stopped at Place du Terte to have a caricature done...

We walked and walked from Sacre Coeur all the way through Opera down to the Jardin du Tuilleries and to the Tour Eiffel stopping for crepes along the way...then through to the Champs-Elysées for a drink before we went our separate ways.

On my way back through to the Metro I could hear a beautiful orchestra playing...the acoustics in the tunnels is amazing...I rounded the corner to find what looked like a youth band that had totally stopped traffic! They were fantastic!!

I have been waiting for the weather to improve to do a night tour of Paris to hopefully get some photos of all the tourist icons lit up...as tonight is my last night it is a do or die effort...not sure if I will get wet or not..you shall have to wait for the last instalment to find out...
