Return to Paris – Happy Birthday, Rich


Happy Birthday, Rich!!


Having a glass of champagne at the Grand Hotel


Today we left Tielt in the morning and got back to Paris around noon.  Marie led us directly to the hotel without a hitch but the traffic was tough.  Driving in central Paris is a nightmare with all of the pedestrians, motorcycles, crazy cars, taxis….. yikes!!  We did, however, make it back without a problem.  Of course, we had to ditch Marie…. c’est dommage….. she’ll soon be helping others find there way…. tournez a gauche!

We spent the afternoon checking out different – and then some of the same – areas of Paris.  Here are just a few shots I took today:


Palais de Justice


Notre Dame and the Seine


Notice the crowds at Notre Dame


We had a great dinner tonight at a Venetian restaurant – excellent food and a very nice location.


Attached below are a few of the pictures I took while in Tielt, Belgium with my family.  We had a great time, ate a lot, drank a lot, and laughed a lot.  It was truly a great time.  I’ll close with the pictures and hope to have the final entry of our trip tomorrow night.  Adieu.

    Woohoo, we’re back in Paris! it is good to see you again and WOW Rich you look handsome. Have you both considered extending your trip a couple more weeks because I am sad to think there will be no blog to look forward to every evening. Love the photo w/ the flower bouquet between the young couple. Flower bouquets in Europe are so romantic.
