Random Tuesday Thoughts
I really think Paris might be my new favorite city, sorry London! Paris has you beat on food!!!
I can't think of a better way to start the day then with Pain au Chocolat (chocolate croissants) and Café Au Lait! Add a little glass jar of plain yogurt and it's the perfect breakfast. Add no meetings until 3pm so I can sleep in, take an hour long bath in the morning then have said breakfast and I'm feeling quite happy.
Would it be too much to order a few more chocolate croissants? I don't think so!!! And what a classy hotel for not even making me sign a receipt! I've always wondered about the real point of that, just put it on my final bill!! Finally a hotel that "gets me"!!
My only regret is not brushing up on my French before coming - somewhere in the two weeks between our last road trip and this trip! I've found that English really isn't spoken here and I should have at least put the basics to memory. So if I ever come back alone, without boss who speaks French, I'll definitely have to remember to brush up on my French!
Finally, speaking of random, yesterday as we returned to our hotel on the train, a young guy stepped onto the train with a boom box playing Micheal Jackson's song "Billie Jean". He proceeded to dance like MJ for about 10 minutes before getting off the train. People mostly ignored him. I thought it was cool to see a young guy passionate enough about his art that he's willing to perform in the most random of places.
