Today we strolled along the Champs Elysées, which apparently is the most expensive strip of real estate in Europe.
We browsed in some shops.
And avoided some others.
Cool window displays, but a little bit out of my league.
We stopped for tea at Ladurée (click to check out their website - go ahead; I'll wait here for you).
Thé Earl Grey de Fleurs for me. Thé Marie-Antoinette for Sandi.
Plus three little pastries. (There were three... I forgot to take the photo before I started eating.)
You have to go through an underground tunnel to get there from the Champs Elysées.
That makes sense - would you want to brave the traffic in le Place de l'Etoile? Traffic comes from twelve different directions (the points of the star).
(I stole this photo from the internet, too)
And I climbed up to the top - two-hundred and eighty-four stairs! (Sandi took the elevator.)
What a magnificent view!
Can you see La Basilique du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre on the hill? We are going there tomorrow.
It seems no matter where we go, we can get a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower.
The Champs Elysées, looking east towards the Louvre (that great big palace at the end).
Always look UP!
I know you're dying to know what kind of crêpe Sandi had tonight, so I won't keep you in suspense any longer.
Honey and Almonds
The rating statistics so far:
#1 Nutella (x2)

(For those of you who are keeping track.)
Well, it's late (almost midnight - I might turn into a pumpkin), so I will wish you all a bonne nuit et des beaux rêves... à bientot!
