Paris - Part 1

We arrived at our final destination, Paris!
Just in time for rush hour!

The traffic was incredible but the city was irresistible.

Wide, tree lined avenues filled with little cafes everywhere.



And history appearing at every turn.

Remember the obelisk in the DaVinci Code?



After checking in to our hotel, Le Meridian Etoile, which was near the Arch De Triumph, 
we traveled across the city to have dinner


where we were serenaded

Au Bistrot de la Montagne

After dinner we enjoyed a beautiful evening cruise up and down the Seine river.


 Barb is so cute:-)






As evening settled in, the moon appeared


 and the city became illuminated.


We saw the Eiffel Tower light show!
Hopefully you can see it too.

What an absolutely perfect evening.
Here is my name inspiring boat.
Then back to the hotel.  Busy day tomorrow when we go up the Eiffel Tower
and visit the Louvre.
