We arrived at about midday and took the RER into Paris to find the Hotel Tiqetonne. We settled in and tried for a quick nap but slept till about 8PM. Then we went out to the “DimSumCo” for a late tea and we walked to the river.
We were near to where I stayed with the kids in 2005 so we walked to the Hotel de Ville, then the Hotel Rue Rivoli to show Uschi where Rhiannon and I stayed before. The area in front of the hotel has been changed markedly, the little road which formed a small park island has now gone. The seats where Rhiannon and I sat are gone and the trees trimmed up a lot. While the pedestrian area is much bigger it is also a lot barer.
