"to err is human, to stroll is parisian." - victor hugo
decided it was time to surrender to sleep around 4am. excited for beau's arrival, i woke up around 8ish thinking i was hearing a suitcase in the courtyard. instead it was a neighbor leaving for work. slumbered off and on until i heard him speaking "frenglish" outside the door. jumped out of bed and gave him a big hug. was so happy to see him. begged for a bit more sleep and he promised to stay up watching some recorded tv shows since he shouldn't sleep (jet lag mantra). well, an hour later, we were both slumbering until 4ish. ah, best laid plans. headed out to dinner at cafe le flore. yummy vegetarian quiche, greens, tea topped of with ice cream for dessert. next a stroll along blvd st-germain into the latin quarter followed by more walking along the left and then right bank of the seine. we saw the eiffel tower begin to sparkle and i took the best shot i could. the lights look blue but they were a gorgeous white. love me some sparkles. finally we hit another sidewalk cafe for more tea and an assortment of yummy cheese. can never have too much cheese. that's where i shot this fun picture of beau gleefully enjoying his tea. so handsome. back home close to midnight. tomorrow musee d'orsay and dinner plus show at moulin rouge! tres bien.
