Paris 2018: Friday

I`m attempting to write this on a French keyboard with a spotlight shining right on the keyboard, making it extra hard to find the right keys.

My plane went at 6.55pm and arrived at 8.40, only fifty minutes in the air but we then drove the plane around the airport for nearly ten minutes, took a bus around the airport for another nearly ten ,inutes and it took forever to find the station. CDG is easily the ,ost confusing airport I`ve ever been to.

I took the RER B into Paris, changed onto a tram at Cité Universitaire, dropped my bag at my hotel (in flawless French, much to my own surprise), got some food at Porte d`Italie and went to Notre Dame. Then over to Ile-St-Louis, RER to Arc de Triomphe. I climbed it (so many stairs!). It`s much higher than it looks and there are rooms Inside. And a very good view of the Eiffel Tower from there.

So when I came down, I got the bus to the Eiffel Tower. Not to climb it, not today but just to look at it. It`s very pretty and actually really weird.

After that I went to check in (in French!) at my hotel and eat the rest of my food before going out for a proper look at Paris in the dark.

Normally I would write more but my computer ti,e is really limited and this keyboard is frustrating.
