A walk around the neighbourhood

The best thing to do on your first day in a new city is to walk around the area. We waked out and headed north across St Germaine for a little breakfast of juice, croissant and cafe creme. Then we walked up to the Seine for a quick look before heading south to visit the Jardins de Luxembourg. This is a favourite spot of Parisiennes.

On a Saturday morning they were walking and jogging and most of all sitting and resting in the chairs scattered around.  Now we are off to the Latin quarter to find a French phrase book. Somehow I neglected to get one before we came and my French seems to have drained out of my head overnight.

  1. And of course the French as spoken there is different from the Canadian French...

    1. Quite right, although i can't really speak either version!


I really appreciate your comments.
