Painful early morning wake up, but grateful to have Jolie as my travelling companion on the bus.Saw the White Cliffs of Dover, and jumped on the ferry to France.
Met our tour leader, an Aussie named Sonya, and bus driver, a Kiwi named Eddie. We were also introduced to our day song 'Blister in the Sun' by the Violent FemmesRocked in to Paris camp and shared rooms with Tom and Jon (Adelaide guys) and Deejay (Canadian guy)
Drove around seeing the sights of Paris during the day, looked like a concert was going on next to the Eiffle tower, saw the Louvre, Arc de Triumph (Eddie's mission impossible entrance to the roundabout), Champs de Alysee etc.
Back home to camp and some quite drinks at the bar. Bar had an air hockey table and a couple of racing arcade games set up. Most the time was spent on the plastic seats outside the bar, talking away for hours
