We decided that on our last day we would take a hop on, hop off bus, and tour around the city, we started at 13:00 and spent the whole day touring around Paris. By the time we were done we had spent better than 6 hours sightseeing around Paris and had seen all of the major sights including the not so well know parts and it had a commentary that went with it
Our final stop was at Notre Dame cathedral, and it is only about one kilometre to our apartment so we took a side street that paralleled the main street in front of our apartment and found a nice little restaurant to stop and have our final evening meal in Paris, oh did I mention the rain stopped before I headed out to Notre Dame this morning, so we didn’t have to contend with the rain on our tour.
My final thoughts on Paris, it is a unique city, very busy with a lot of traffic, the street that we have our apartment on is very busy, as is most streets in Paris, so if you plan to visit here, really check out your neighbourhood because when it’s hot out and you open the windows, the street noise sometimes can be unbearable. I have determined that whoever invented those little scooters needs to have a quieter sounding muffler system so the decibel noise isn’t that of a jet engine going by as most modes of transport are motorcycles, then small cars, etc
Tomorrow we are up early and this will be our last time using the public transportation extensively as we will be picking up our new Renault lease car at the Orly area south of Paris at 10:00 AM and I am not taking another subway or bus to get there either, Taxi!, and from there we will be on our way to the medieval city of Troyes where the Knights Templar originated from and we are staying there for one night. I am not sure of my internet connection there, so it may be a day or two before I sign on again. After that we are headed for the southern area of Germany in the Black Forest and staying in a Gasthaus for a few days. So, it’s au revoir for now, and hopefully we will talk to you in a couple of days.
