Wickre Travelogue (August 22nd)

Got up late, had breakfast at 11:00 a.m. at "our restaurant" L Ecole Militaire where we had breakfast on Tuesday. Caught a taxi to the Louver - very, very crowded, raining outside, spent 2 hours, saw the Mona Lesa the Venus De Milo and the famous painting from the French Revolution of the storming the barricades. Then off to Saint Chapelle, late lunch while pouring rain, then to Notre Dame Cathedral - pouring rain, cathedral beautiful, left cathedral - pouring rain, spent time looking for taxi or metro - found both at the same time - took taxi - taxi driver had dog with him, very cute, saw many dogs on the streets of Paris compared to only a couple in London. Back to hotel - tired, very wet and cold, took hot shower. Too wet, cold and tired to go out for food so ate out of "mini bar" in room.
