We walked to our hotel first thing and dropped our luggage. After dropping our luggage we at lunch at Chipotle. London is the only Chipotle in England and one of Greg’s fav restaurants. The whole day was spent walking and using the Underground (England’s subway system). After lunch we went to the British Museum, British Library, and War Museum. After we were done with that we went back to the hotel to freshen up before going to Wagamama for dinner. It was a quick meal before heading to “Wicked”. Greg and Karen got me the ticket to Wicked for my birthday. It was a really great show and I enjoyed it a lot.

This morning we got up and took a taxi to the train station and are on our way to Paris for two days. We arrived in Paris and headed straight to our hotel. After we freshened up we headed out, we got sandwiches at a corner patassire. We spent the whole day jumping on and off of the Metro. Greg did a GREAT job navigating. We visited “Shakespeare’s Bookstore” where people like Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald borrowed books. We then went thru Notre Dame…. No I didn’t see the hunchback… it was his day off!

Then we stopped for coffee trying to dry out and warm up from the rain that had started…. Then we stopped at some shops before eating at a restaurant that a local florist recommended (in French) called “7vin” it was amazing food and yes I ate snails.

After we ate, we headed to the Eiffel Tower. Within just a few minutes it finally quit raining (after about 3 hrs of rain). It was an awesome day.
