Paris Day 2

Let me just start by saying that we suck at discipline.

We went to bed very late last night, and resolved that we would get up at 9ish and get the go going.

Apparently the alarm went off as planned, but SB just ignored it. And I didn't hear it at all. So, we slept until noon. Oops. I guess our bodies needed it, but still...

Once we finally got going, we hopped on to the hop-on/hop-off bus tour to get an overview of the city. We saw:

around our part of town, Montmartre:

Notre Dame:
and lots of other stuff like the Eiffel Tower, l'Arc de Triomphe, etc. It was a quick and dirty tour that basically was to give us bit of a bearing on where everything is. We had a panini on the Seine for lunch, which made SB very happy:
We haven't finalized plans for tomorrow yet, but they were supposed to include the Musee D'Orsay and the Eiffel tower. After today's little sleep in, we have some schedule adjusting to do, but hey, we're on vacation, so who cares, right?

Also, we have lots of pics of the both of us on our other camera, but we promptly fried the battery charger so we can't get the pictures out. We will work on fixing that tomorrow...

Sort of a random question.. But I was force fed MW programming last night and he was watching a show on architecture, and they were discussing *giggle* flying buttresses... Are those flying buttresses on that front part of the cathedral?

Hope you're enjoying the baguettes!

funny you should mention the buttresses - those are indeed flying buttresses (*HA*ha*hmpf...), and I tried to make a joke about them but SB didn't get it because he was so preoccupied with trying to figure out what they were. Pointy holder-upper thingies = flying buttresses. He noticed them today, though.
