second day. June 15th.Hey, we've just concluded our
very first full day in France. The day started out with Margot
and me asleep on the plane, we were aroused at about 5:30 (French
Time) and were stumbling out of the plane at 6:00. We found our
way to the Metrostop, got on a train and within twenty minutes
we had arrived at the apartment. We dropped off our bags, the
apartment wasn't available until 1:30 so we went over to Notre
Dame. It was AWESOME! After half an hour of observing the wonders
of the church and getting beat up by all of the tour groups we
decided it was time to go. We walked around a little but soon
we were hungry so we dropped by a small food stand and bought
some baguette sandwiches. After we were done we went to the Pompidou
center, waited for half an hour in line and were finally admitted.
By this time we were completely worn out both physically and mentally
and it was around 1:30 so we went to our apartment and took a
two hour long nap. When we woke up we went to the supermarket
and bought some groceries. We decided that we'd go out to dinner,
so at 7:30 we went to a restaurant we'd read good reviews about.
The reviews were dead on the mark. The service wasn't exactly
prompt, but it was worth the wait. We finally got home at 9:00
, had ice cream and plopped into bed.
