Today started as almost every day has started here in Rue Montorgueil:
breakfast from Maison Collet.
Their croissants are perfection ♥.
Today I did something a little different though; instead of ordering a croissant
'naturel', I bought a croissant 'beurre'.
Yes, butter. As if croissant don't have enough butter already.
And as if I haven't eaten enough croissants these past two weeks.
Oscar Wilde's quote "everything in moderation, including moderation" doesn't
really apply here in Paris. Well, for me it doesn't.
Enfin, my brother joined me today.
This is his first trip to Paris so I took him to all of the popular sites.
Starting with the iron lady, la Tour Eiffel:
We walked across the Pont Alexandre III.
One of the best views of the city in my opinion.
I took this picture 2 years ago from the bridge:
Walked by the Grand & Petit Palais.
And then headed to the Arc de Triomphe.
It was so hot, we felt like we triumphed the Champs-Élysées when we got to the Arc.
Then we took the even-hotter metro to Le Louvre, wanting to go in, but it
was closed because today is mardi.
We then decided to take a stroll through les Jardins des Tuileries and enjoy the fair.
After dinner, I took my brother to
boulangerie - pâtisserie, Maison Collet.
We picked a millefeuille and an éclair chocolat for dessert.
That's it for now.
Tomorrow will be my last full day.
