Zee Ladies Trip to Paree

We returned from Africa Tuesday morning, then turned around and went to Paris on Friday with the 21 and 15 yr old daughters. We've all been before, of course, but we still had a good time taking in the usual iconic sites. We walked a 10K on Saturday and enjoyed delicious meals at Laduree as well as Cafe de Flore. 

The coed met up with one of her best friends from college that is studying abroad in Rennes, France, this summer. Both of our rooms had a lovely view of the Eiffel Tower, but one had a darling terrace we really enjoyed.

Our Eurostar train trip was delayed, both departing and returning, due to an earlier train that stalled on the tracks and migrants at Calais that got past the barriers and were blocking the chunnel entrance.

Two things in Paris that caught my attention - all of the locks removed from the famous Pont des Arts bridge since the metal grilles were replaced with plexiglass, and several Asian women having their bridal portraits taken in front of Parisian icons like the Louvre and Notre Dame.
