Where I stayed
For lunch we had mushroom soup and brioche bread.
Then we went out. We looked for Tati on Rue du Republique but couldn't find it. So we went to the Jardin du Luxembourg. It's really beautiful. Lots of trees with gorgeous blooming flowers all around.
We went to the "pond" and the kids rented sailboats that you push across the water with sticks (2 Eur per 1/2 hr). They had SO much fun. I sat on a chair in the shade and watched them play and laugh.
We walked around some more and saw an area for bee hives
A little building behind the playground is where you can watch a marionette show. The kids weren't interested though. It is 4.40 Eur to get in. A guy would go out with a bell and ring it to get people to come in to see the show.
We took the RER and Metro back home, where we had rabbit and pan-roasted fingerling potatoes with herbs de Provence for dinner. Yumm! We spent the rest of the evening just relaxing.
