DATELINE: Lille to Paris
We are happily back in Paris after the recovery weekend in Lille. Mr. C is still coughing and wheezing and blowing his nose but assures me he's feeling better. We caught the 11:40 TGV to Gare du Nord ~ first class seats on the TGV are well worth the euros ~ stuffed our bags into a taxi and were at the front door by 1:30 PM on a grey and occasionally rainy afternoon. The apartment is exactly as I remember it from our stay here in 2005. The rue des Rosiers was jammed (as usual) with pedestrians so we got out of the taxi and walked the last couple of blocks. We've been to the market for basics, picked up a couple of quiches for dinner and are ready to relax and take it easy for a day or so. Then it will be back on the museum/shopping/exploring/dining routine again. Photos of the apartment and environs tomorrow.
