With approximately an hour's catnap on the way over, we hit the ground running. We spent the first day exploring our neighbourhood: the fifth district. Lunch was on the go with a quiche wrapped in foil and when I asked for a coffee I received an expresso. I learned that I should have asked for a cafe creme. Dinner consisted of cheese, bread and wine on a terrace while listening to a guitar player.
Despite what the media has been saying lately about the privacy concerns of the French citizens I felt rather uninhibited in pointing my camera at people to take their photographs. Pierre, a waiter was more than accommodating when Valerie and I asked for a photograph. Here are some favourite pictures. Enjoy :)
