Return to the Louvre

Our last full day in Paris. Time to do a few of the things we haven’t managed so far.

First, we stopped at Berthillon ice cream shop.

Then a look at the inside of Notre Dame de Paris.  The crowd was the biggest we saw in any church.




Then on to the Louvre. This time to go inside.

Allie decided she needed food first before looking at art.  We went to Cafe Marly where we ate on our last day in Paris in 2003.

Then we were off to do some shopping for chocolate.


Unsuccessfully looked for men’s rings in Place Vendome area.
Successfully found shoes at Christian Louboutin’s shop.


Dinner was a La Tour d’Argent, where we all dressed up a bit.

The next day, Friday, we were up early and heading back home, still digesting Thursday’s dinner.
