Kiki does Eiffel Tower

Kiki does Eiffel Tower

Amy:  Just a quick update.  We spent yesterday touring the Notre Dame and the Louvre Museum.  It was a cloudy and cool day but it did not rain.  The Louvre was amazing, not just because of the amazing works of art but the building itself is a work of art. We saw the Mona Lisa and other famous works of art.

We have been riding our bikes back and forth into the ciy and think we have our way figured out.  The traffic yesterday was crazy,  I wonder if everyone drives on Friday because they go out after work.  Regardless,  it is 6:25 pm in Paris right now, less then 3 hours until the big World Cup of Rugby final.  We went to the Eiffel Tower today to see what was happening at it appears all the English fans are gathering.  I noted that their beer of choice seems to be Heineken.  I am sure it will get quite crazy there later.  It might have been fun to stick around but we couldn't ride our bikes back in the dark.  We have scouted out a pub near our campground that we will go watch the game, if we can get it.

Today it was clear but cool so we started off into Paris after lunch.  We went to the Luxembourg Gardens in addition to the Eiffel Tower.  We finally found a McDonalds in Paris that has free Wifi so we stopped to upload some pictures and do a quick update.  Patti just reminded me about the quick part so that is it for now.

It looks like you guys are having fun !
Amy are you going to bring back some of that yummy chocolate you keep talking about?

Take care

Just so that you have a true picture of what is happening and important in the CFL, the Riders also won this weekend. They will now host a playoff game for the first time in 20 years (now that is significant). Carly got back from her outdoor ed. trip a few hours ago ... she had a lot of fun. I think she was most pleased that she was selected to be a group leader. Heidi is in S'toon until Wednesday so I get to single parent again. I have a paper due on Wednesday that I'm stuck on ... maybe I'll be inspired tomorrow (I better be). Take care, the Regina based Phillips'.
