Paris 2008 - 2-4 Juillet

2 Juillet (Mercredi) - Did nothing. Went nowhere. We watched as they put up this scaffolding on the building across the way. it has been now been there for a week and we have yet to see anyone on it.

3 Juillet (Jeudi) - Our day started with a concert by an organ grinder. Then, we bussed over to Italie2 to pick up Robb's repaired jacket. They either did a good job, or just replaced it, we're not sure which scenario is the real one.

After, we walked down to Café Canon so I could get a picture of it with it's new name. I figured as long as we were in the area, we might as well go down to the computer place we always went to before, to get a print-out of our eticket from Newark to Fort Lauderdale. I was surprised to find the place was gone. It seems a lot of things we've liked for several years, are no longer here. Quel dommage. We left there and walked further down the avenue then we've gone before.

We caught the 47 bus to Pont de Notre Dame and walked over to l'Hôtel de Ville (stopping to get a photo of the Conciergerie and Chatelet) where there was a ceremony for Ingrid Betancourt. We didn't really see anything except a lot of reporters and TV cameramen. We walked across the street to a bistro. While sitting there, we could hear Mayor Delanoe giving his speech.

Bussed home. Went to Beyrouth for dinner.

4 Juillet (Vendredi) - Walked down to the corner of rue de Charonne and Boulevard Voltaire for dinner at l'Ingenu. Again, I opted to use my video function for a couple of short videos. One for the exterior area. I think you can almost tell from the video that we were only a couple inches from being on the café terrase. And one for a short tour of the interior.

Plus à venir, mes amis.
