Paris

Paris was great.

Eurostar

We went there on the EuroStar.

Hotel

Walked about 25 minutes to our hotel which looked out on a delightful square. Platz des Inocents, a previous children’s cemetary.

This was next to Les Halles, a famous market I learned about in French at school.

We got a City Pass.
