Yesterday was a very special day for me. Not only was it my last day in Paris, but I got to meet Andrea From Germany. She drove down from NW Germany to Paris so we could meet. It was both her and my first time in Paris, and it was lovely spending the time with her and husband Thomas.

First we met at the Museum D'Orsay, then we went to the Eiffel Tower together! Wow, the crowds were just unbelievable! So we opted for finding a restaurant for dinner and came back to the Tower after dark! Wow, it is so beautiful lit up at night

We just had the best time with them, and we got back to our hotel at 11:00, tired but very happy for our great day together! We left early this morning for Chalon sur Saone, the town at the beginning of our River cruise in Southern France.

Sorry, pictures won't upload down here on the River!

That is the best! I had a feeling the other day when you suggested it that she would after all who would be five hours away from Jean and the Eiffel tower and not?:)

Glad you are having a wonderful time! Looking forward to seeing pics...

I love the Musee d'Orsay! I loved it so much I had the upstairs in my house painted the color of the marble walls there. Too bad I don't have all the artwork, though! ;-) I'm so glad you are having a wonderful time. :)

Isn't it great to meet people in the places you'd least expect! Enjoy your trip the river cruise sounds terrific. The view from the Eiffel Tower is spectacular, but I wish I had been there to see it at night we weren't there long enough to do that.
