Forgive the lack of accents on various French words. I have been to lazy to sort this out.

We have arrived and sit together in bed after 36 hours of travelling, jet lagged but still on one piece. We will not be long awake, but after a good meal and some wins, we feel entitled to celebrate each in our own way.

The Hotel is fine and the trip, though long, was pretty easy. We were stuck in St Pancras for four hours as we has been too conservative in our planning, but that played to our advantage. I scrabbled together enough French to buy Metro passes and we knew the location of the Hotel from Google Street view.

Tomorrow Musee D’Orsay and the Left Bank. Bienvenu a Paris!
