And so to the first full day. My friend Trish was determined to get beyond the second level of the Eifel tower and as the weather forecast for the weekend were poor and as we poked head outside of the hotel it was dry off we trotted....

This young lady was part of a fashion shoot.
Ah here she is our heroine with her usual lunchtime tipple a glass of Red :D We had lunch on the Champs Elysees to celebrate her triumph.
The Grand and Petit Palais
So to the Hotel De Invalides
Les Invalides was built by Louis XIV in the 1670's for old or invalid soldiers. Today Louis' chapel of Les Invalides church houses the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte (they were placed there in 1861). Les Invalides has a garden, museum and the church. It's a beautiful place.
