Bonjour from Paris

We arrived in the beautiful city of Paris and were pleasantly surprised that our hotel was across the road from the Arc de Triomphe.  There were so many amazing buildings and monuments.  We took a walk along the Seine river and lucky for Mick there was an aviation exhibition beside the river which kept him amused while i took a few hundred pictures.

Before we left many people in Australia told us that the French are lovely and the rudeness thing is a myth..well they lied.  There are many lovely people who helped us with directions on the streets, however most waitresses have been to rude classes, this is bizarre for a profession working for tips.

Highlights of our days in Paris would have to be the amazing Eiffel tower (which we walked up to appreciate fully rather than taking the lift) and the boat tour along the river.
