6 December, 2006: From Tours to Paris

We left Tours for Paris fairly early to give us a chance to see a bit of tourist Paris before we began our site visits. By now we were more self-sufficient, so we dispersed widely, with many ending up at the Eiffel Tower at dusk just as the lights began to sparkle!

Our hotel was in the 11th arrondissement near Place de la Bastille. Several metro lines converged at that station, making it a good base for our explorations.

There were plenty of good places to eat in the area between our hotel and metro station, [including tex-mex !] and interesting small streets to explore. There was also a convenient cybercafé, food stores and a laundromat close by.
