Another day in Paris – a walk along the Seine. And expensive coffee.

Eiffel Tower november 2017We walked along the banks of the River Seine and had views of the Eiffel Tower all the way. A Google search for ‘The best view of the Eiffel Tower from a cafe’ gave the Cafe Trocadero as the best result. We sat in a front row table so I could draw but the view came at a price! 6.5 euros per latte! Think the river view is better! And the coffee is a bit cheaper!

And I loved the contrast with the bored little boy kicking stones!Luxembourg gardensThe Luxembourg gardens are in 6th Arrondisement and are enjoyed by all ages. We sat and drew surrounded by children having pony rides and hundreds of walkers enjoying the November sun. The statues are lovely but some seem to missing arms or are wrapped in polythene.
