Au revoir, Paris!

Ceci est mon dernier annonce de Paris. Demain, nous allons prendre l'avion et rentrer au Canada. Il sera difficile de dire au revoir.

Today was a day of cleaning and making sure everything was in order at the apartment before we hand back over the keys and lock up for the last time. We swept and scrubbed and polished. The place looks better now than when we arrived.

But it was not all hard work on our last day. We treated ourselves this evening to dinner at Le Procope, one of the oldest cafés in Paris



and then to a cruise on the Seine.



It was still light out when we boarded the boat at 8:30, but by the time we left a half-hour later, it was night-time. As you know, my camera takes awful photos in the dark. The pictures of the Eiffel Tower were the only ones that turned out well, probably because of all the lights.


So... goodbye, Paris. Goodbye Seine. Goodbye, little apartment on rue Xavier Privas.


Je vais vous manquer, mais je vais revenir un jour.

Bonjour à domicile à Edmonton. J'ai hâte de vous voir demain.

I can't believe how fast the time flew during your Paris trip. Thanks for all the great photos and posts along the way. I'm sure it's the only way I'll ever "tour" Paris!

did you know you are a "no-reply" blogger? I don't think it used to be like that. I can't reply back. Thanks for the b-day wishes.
