The second incarnation of my blog


I started yesterday at 4.15am to embark on a bit of an adventure. I spent 9 and a half hours exploring Paris and taking some pictures. I found plenty of new locations – some good, some not do good, all worthwhile in their own way. Thanks to Pete who stayed at home with Zac.

More to follow, but in the meantime:

Overheard in Paris #1: Frantic Australian girl on mobile: “Whatever you do, don’t tell Dad about the $10,000!” …intriguing

Overheard in Paris #2:
American woman to girl: “Who said ‘let them eat cake?'”. Girl: “I’m not sure… was he American?”

Overheard in Paris #3: Same Americans talking about the height of Montparnasse tower: “Are there feet in metres?”

(I know not all Americans are like this, these were just a dim family!)
