First day in Paris

Eiffel tower and carousel with Mimi

After 15 hours, 2 planes, 4 hours in Philadelphia, we finally arrived in Paris early in the morning. We were pretty much dead from the trip. The next day we went to Paris and went to Les Halles Shopping stores and stopping for lunch at the fountain outside, I used to hang out there and get some food years ago.

Then we walked to Le louvre where Mimi had fun feeding the pigeons.

We walked through the Jardin des tuileries.

 We took the subway to the Eiffel tower for ice cream and a picnic in the grass.

We went home very tired from all the walking. It was Mimi's first time taking the train and subway.
It was very nice to be back to my city and go around with the public transportation like in the old days and The weather was warm and perfect!!
I finally got to see my Mom and family after so long.
