Happy Birthday to Ashley, Happy Birthday to Ashley, Happy Birthday dear Ashley, Happy Birthday to you.
SIX MONTHS TODAY!!!!!
Well a big sleep in today before getting up for our standard breakfast at home. Nicky went and got our croissants for us again. We went around the corner to the bus stop and saw the bus taling off, so had to wait for the next one. Only about 30 minutes between the buses. If you come to Paris the "Hop On Hop Off" bus tours are great. With the one ticket you can do all four routes and get on and off as many times as you want. Also a 2 day ticket is only 3 euro more than a single day ticket (28 euro for adult). Today was the worst day for weather it was extremely windy but no rain and cold but not freezing.
We got off near "Palais Garnier" the "Opera House" so that we could do the tour that we tried to do yesterday. Unfortunately the actual theatre was closed for rehearsals but the areas that were open were magnificent. When in Paris a tour of the Opera House is a must. We stopped at a department store for lunch in their cafe. Baguettes again. Ashley was asleep on the table and everyone thought that she was beautiful. Todays Ashley Adjectives were "magnifique" and "adorable".
We decided to find a great little Italian place we ate at hen we were in Paris for our honeymoon. We finally found it and enjoyed a great pasta dinner and Cam and KL really enjoyed the Chocolate Cream Brulee for dessert. On teh walk back we decided to take a short cut and found the seedier side of this area of Paris. Nick got to see the sex shops, peep show windows and ladies of the night squabbling over territory. Couldn't get out of there quick enough. But funny to see. Late night again as when you don't head out to dinner until 8pm the time certainly gets away from you.
