After an hour or so there, we take the metro to the Champs Elysee. We wander up to the Arc de Triomphe and then back to a restaruant for lunch. So taken was I with the onion soup from yesterday, I decide to have it again. John has the vegetable soup. Then we both have the croque monsieur, basically a toasted ham and cheese sandwhich
After lunch we head back to the hotel via the Metro to pick up our luggage and head to the airport.
The trip to the airport is quick, we check in, buy a few final things and have a champagne in the lounge.
The flight to London is uneventful, but we bump into a number of people we know at Heathrow.The security at Heathrow is unbelievable, heightened for the day for some reason or other. John is put through a full body scanner which picks up something/nothing in the sleeve of his polo shirt. Sue's handbag is totally emptiedevery item examined and several subjected to explosive particle search. This leads to a delayed departure, as other passengers from later connecting flights are subjected to the same treatment.
We get on the plane have dinner and get some sleep. We're on the way home.
