Day 1 in Paris

I'm here! I'm really in Paris! The first 24 hours were kind of a blur; thank goodness I have the pictures to remember what I saw!

Heart's a-flutter

HOLY COW ... I leave today. TO-DAY! It's really starting to hit me (my heart is racing as I type this). Thank you for all the good wishes ... next post will be from Paris!

The bare minimum

Packing ... this is all I need for 6 days in Paris (barely even 12 inches of clothing and shoes and, yes, that even includes the cosmetics!) Wearing the raincoat on the plane and plan to wash a couple of things in the sink. I am *so* ready for this!!!!

A French yard sale!

Vide Grenier ... as if the flea markets and bouquinistes weren't enough, today I found out we will be going to a couple of these "clean out the attic" sales while we are in Paris! A French yard sale?! I'm speechless ... !

Bouquinistes ...

900 green painted boxes alongside the Seine in Paris containing an estimated 300,000 old books, magazines, stamps, posters and postcards. *oh*my*gosh*can*not*breathe*i'm*so*excited!

Zut Alors!

The air traffic controllers in France are on strike! Fingers crossed this will not affect my flight to Paris (I'm not as concerned about the return!) My travel agent has told me not to worry ...

I love a challenge

The challenge ... I was told it couldn't be done, but I found a *cute* black raincoat with a hood! That + my black Converse + my stripey scarf and I'm all set for any rainy days at the Paris flea market!
