Johnny has arrived, seems to have done well on flight over. With all of the rain of course he had some turbulence, but it seems that is necessary on everyone's first flight. Said he didn't sleep and was sitting between 2 women. He had a quick case of jet lag and has slept most of the day. We have moved to a hotel that is nice for a European city hotel because we have our own bathroom ha . Also a little terrace overlooking the street to sit on. It is small as I had expected, but not as small as sharing a flat with 4 other people, I feel like it is Christmas. I have been in others people's homes with other couch surfers for the last 2 weeks, it was great, but ready to not share a bathroom with 4 other people for a while.
Went to street where Moulin Rouge is tonight and ate supper. At first we did not know we were anywhere famous and couldn't figure out why everyone was stopping and taking our picture on the sidewalk café. Then noticed we were sitting in front of a plaque with famous names of people who use to hang out there. It was funny because I couldn't for the life of me figure we looked so good that all of those people wanted our picture, it was really funny. The waiter even kept wanting to take our picture, he said "kiss her, kiss her" he knew that much English.
Sending a few picture of Paris, have not really started seeing the city yet, will rest and start after this holiday is over and things start to open. As for now we are at a good location on a side street in a busy part of Paris near Gare St-Lazare station, so we can walk a block down and eat at cafes on the sidewalks and watch the people, and there are plenty to watch. Also the La Madeleine is at the end of that street and can be seen from the restaurants.
Hoping to get to the Eiffel Tower in the daytime and at night before the weeks end.
