A Travellerspoint blog

We have arrived!!!!!!

at the airport ;-)

overcast 12 °C

So we just made it through the security check and they were not impressed with the GUN SHOW and have taken away my arms, honestly, I am typing with my nose.

After security we stumbled upon a little known shop called Duty Free. Let me tell you something, this "Duty Free" place had some bargoons. They bargains were so good that we decided to buy Vera Wang perfume and a box of cigars. After such purchaces were made, we decided to celebrate by drinking some beer/wine and grab a bite to eat. So far, we have not killed each other so we're off to a good start (although, since john has no arms, Kathryn has the upper hand).

In case of those very worried about Kathryn's essay, yes she did in fact finish it, though the quality may have beem compromised...

We will be boarding in about an hour, and will begin the greatest 7 hours of our lives....yay to sleeping while in the air!! We definitely brought a lot to keep us busy like Kat's new DS that john bought her :) :) and good ol' sleeping pills.

And MJ, since you have made us aware that you're reading these blogs, dont worry we only did it a few times since we've arrived (and mom Connors, of course I dont do it....ever)

That being said, we are off to sit around for an hour. We are going to try to blog as much as possible to stay posted for our next exciting posting....and no Graham, John has yet to remember what he forgot

Lots of Love (and doing it),

John and Kathryn

ps. Jerry--hope your truck made it home ok and that your not still stuck in the airport

ppss. Rita, this is not me (Kathryn) writing these aweful words...

Check out the oldest bar in Paris, and the oldest continuously running café in the world.

R'serve de Quasimodo, 4 rue de la Colombe, is the oldest bar in Paris. I can’t remember exactly how to get there, but it’s in the vicinity of Notre Dame; down some dodgy side street. They’ve got an incredible wine list, and pretty descent food too.

Le Procope claims to be the oldest café in the world (dubious claim, I know, but still interesting to go there), and apparently has been open on the same site since the 1680’s (Ottoman Empire days). You can get there from Odeon Square, take the rue Mazxxxxxx (can’t remember the rest of the name of the street), and you almost immediately come upon it… Voltaire, and other great minds are known to have frequented there.

Also, keep a look out for the Arago Medallions… There are 135 or so of them across Paris, and they run north/south along the Paris Meridian. The easiest to find are in the Louvre and it’s courtyard (there's one directly under the great pyramid), but there are a bunch more in other places like the Paris Observatory and through some of the more beautiful churches and cathedrals in Paris.

Have fun!
