Along the Seine
Le Jardin du Luxembourg
Returning to the Seine, I cross over to the Louvre, proceed up Avenue de l'Opera to the Opera, over to L'Eglise de Madeleine, then to Place de la Concorde, up the Champs Elysses to the Arc de Triumph, and over to the Jardins du Trocadero, across from the Eiffel Tower (along with the thousands of other people relaxing and/or taking pictures at the Trocadero). A great stroll through the city!

Now that I've had my walk through the city, it's time to eat. I've been observing the people in the cafes and the food in the windows as I walk by and I choose a restaurant a few blocks from the Trocadero, where I settle in for fois gras and a platter of home-made sausages.

After dinner, it's back to my hotel at the airport for an early morning flight to San Francisco. It's great to wander through Paris, even if only for an afternoon!
