Au revoir!

I miss Paris already. Thursday was a little crazy - Beverly and Monica left early for maximum Carte Musee usage, and got separated at the Musee d'Orsay (which isn't too hard considering the maze-like layout of some of the rooms). My mom and I hit the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay, had a drink off Place Dauphine where some guys were playing petanque (I think the same square was on Sex and the City - need to check). The evening was a little chaotic as we were trying to reunite, but all was well, and after a group hug we went to Chez Omar, which was brilliant. The fantastic food and service made up for the rude Arab waiter at Leon Bruxelles on Boulevard St Germain de Pres. The owner even welcomed the Americans back to Paris (I'm sure he missed our wallets). Had a lovely dinner to close out the trip chez Emilie et Olivier, where they worked wonders with a tiny kitchen. It was so nice to have familiar people with whom to sightsee and dine or get drinks. Luckily we did a considerable amount of walking so the calories have not adhered to my hips.

Back to Baltimore next week for one final hurrah. Wonder where I'll go next.....

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!
