Paris is beautiful

We have settled into our lovely apartment in Rue de Trensor in the Marais area. It’s is a lively part of the Marais but in a small pedestrian street which makes it quiet. It’s on the 4th floor – with a lift and is in an old building . It has a lovely sitting room with comfortable seating  a tiny kitchen , good sized bedrooms and the smallest bathroom and separate toilet I have ever seen . Peter, Carmel and I are getting along in this lovely place very well.
We can walk to lots of things. Shops, restaurants, the metro , museums etc so we are very happy with our choice. Steve had the day with us on Saturday and we walked around the area and had an early dinner . He gave me the most beautiful roses – so every time I look at them I am reminded of him.

On Sunday it rained and we decided to walk and walk and walk. We were keen to visit the St Martins canal area so went up there – but the rain had everyone indoors and lots of things closed so it wasn’t very lively. We headed  back to Bastille and then across to Place des Voges where it got quite lively with Parisians having lunch.  We tried one of the famous falafals from the institution in Rue de Rositers, the Jewish street . The line was long but moved quickly so we took them home and enjoyed it in th warmth of the apartment. Yum.

Sunday night we went out late for a light bite and had great stir fried veggies !

Monday fined up so we headed off to the Haussmann area and did a little shopping and sight-seeing and bought some tickets for a concert at Saint Chapelle for Wednesday night. Walked a lot and bought new black boots. Pete and Carmel headed off to Montmarte and to the Moulin Rouge to get tickets to the show on Thursday. I’ve never been so we are quite excited! We could only get the 11 pm show so will have to have a nonna nap.

Enjoyed a late dinner at the restaurant opposite the Jeanne de Arc hotel where I stayed with Jan, Marg, Liz, Barb, and Catherine several years ago. I’m thinking of you girls and the fun we had.
