Well, today we packed our bikes and most of our luggage for our trip home tomorrow. That finished, we took one last trip into Paris to visit Notre Dame and the area around the Louvre. Clair had not yet been to Notre Dame so we went there first. It is a short walk from the RER train station and were there in no time. The crowds were as large as ever but it was still very impressive. The stained glass, the carvings, the flying buttresses and the sheer scale of this structure all contribute to the effect. Next, we went back to the Louvre via some small streets a block or two in from the River Seine. Turning each corner brought a new surprise as we explored some new areas. Tuileries Gardens then back on the train to our hotel in St. Quentin. We will leave early tomorrow for our long flight home.
