It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Paris!

We went up to London as normal, except some naughty railway person moved the EuroStar terminus from Waterloo - where our local train arrives - to St. Pancras which is two tube trains away. Trundling across London with our bags eliminated any advantage of getting from the London to Paris any quicker from the new terminus...

On Sunday we went up the tall pointy thing in the centre of Paris that looks a bit like Blackpool Tower. It was very windy and cold at the top but the view is quite impressive - better on a clear sunny day no doubt. Our friend's six year old son really enjoyed the visit to the top and by going early in the day and on not such a sunny day we hardly had to wait at all.

In the afternoon we then went to Palais de la découver which is a jolly nice place, lots of nice stuff to do and very interesting - even if you are six.

On Monday we went to "Le Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle" which was also very interesting, much better than the Natural History Museum in London. Again we managed to entertain our six year old guest.

On Tuesday our friends went back to the States and we pottered about in Paris doing a bit of shopping before setting of into the country to see our family not in Paris.
