Crepes, churros, and Place de la Concorde make for a perfect day in Paris.
We set off at a very gentle pace, stopping frequently to learn more about local streets, parks, monuments, and memorials. We passed some of Paris’ most illustrious sites, such as Les Invalides and the Louvre, but there was also significant focus on smaller neighbourhood attractions, like a statue honoring Louis Pasteur. It felt like we were getting to know the real Paris and, despite taking in so many famous sites and learning so much, I never felt rushed or overwhelmed.
This, of course, is not in any way the fault of tour group and in fact Bill backed me up and helped me resolve the issue. But upon further reflection I wonder why the company would patronize an touristy café in an area notorious for ordinary food and unreasonable prices when the group travels through so many different, diverse neighbourhoods.
