Correction: Last night (8/6/13) I was wondering “did I post our visit to the Luxembourg Gardens?” I discovered that I got the dates wrong in my previous posts — that is what jetlag can do to you! So, I made the necessary corrections and here is my posting of our day at the Saint-Suplice Church and the Jardin du Luxembourg.
Frankly, I do not remember when we got up. Let’s just say the sun was out and it would be another warm day.
It was a restless night for me. I was awake, I was asleep — repeat! My DH seems to be doing better but still, the heat and the humidity of the evening does not help one when it comes to sleeping. The good news — the apartment is amazingly quiet, even with the windows open.
We went out for bread and an expresso. We went back to the apartment and made breakfast — it was yummy and just the way we liked it! Cooking for ourselves will save us loads of Euros — this breakfast would easily cost us 25 Euros at a cafe.
We decided to take one of the walking tours from the book my DH purchased yesterday while at the Galleries Lafayette bookstore — “A Paris Walking Guide: 20 Charming Strolls.” We decided on the walk of “The Saint-Sulpice Area” in the 6th Arrondissement. With its world famous cityscape, deeply rooted intellectual tradition, prestigious history, beautiful architecture and central situation, this arrondissement has long been home to French intelligentsia and is a major localization for art galleries. It is simply one of the most fashionable districts of Paris! The big attractions of this district are the Saint-Sulpice Church and the Jardin du Luxembourg.
After the garden, we went back to the apartment to rest. Around 9pm, we were wide awake and we went out for another walk around the neighborhood.
It was a long day, but a good one!
