And oddly much more cheerful, I don't know why Rome seemed to get me down, I mean it was full of wonderful sights, endless history and fabulous food. I think it might just have been the heat.

I managed to navigate the metro at 11 in the evening and find my way to my hotel which is absolutely perfect small, cheap (for Paris anyway) and less than 2 minutes walk from a metro.

The food here is amazing as always but unfortunately it's raining outside. I found my way to an English language bookstore and bought the new Terry Pratchett which I'm going to try and read slowly despite devouring most of the other books I've bought in less than and evening.

I also bought a small guide to Paris to help me decide what to do with the rest of my time here (although tomorrow is going to be the Louvre...all day).

I train out of here on the 10th and wind up in London for a couple of days until my flight on the 13th.

Hit the Musée d'Orsay, which has the planet`s best postcard racks. And, for the cemeteryphiliac, there is the Père Lachaise....

Paris is great

We enoyed Paris although it was really touristy. We thought about the Louvre but the queues and the entry fee put us off. So enjoy.. looking forward to seeing the photos. Dad

I read somewhere that the Louvre is 'the most actively avoided' tourist attraction in Paris. I went there once, but found it hard not to feel overwhelmed..... have been to Paris several times since, but have never come up with a 'plan' for what I want to see there that makes it seem more manageable!!
