We arrived in Paris on Monday with limited wifi access, so posting will not be as frequent as I had hoped.
We rented an apartment in St. Germain, the 6th arrondisement, near everything. It is in an ancient building with NO ELEVATOR on the 4th floor! Lots of wide spiral stairs to climb after a day of sightseeing! That should keep the pounds off!
The Ecole des Beaux Arts is at the end of our street, the famous art school where Degas, Renoir and other famous artists attended.
The nice thing about this place is it has a full modern kitchen, which you don't often find in Paris. So if I wanted to actually COOK a meal, I could.
Lots of commercial pots and pans and high end kitchen equipment. Too bad I don't plan on using the kitchen for anything but making coffee!
A lovely view of a courtyard with modern metal sculptures beneath our bedroom window.
Lots of storage space for extra pillows and clothes.
Nice marble bathrooms w/ an American stall shower, also a luxury in Paris.
So that's the apartment tour.
More about food and wine tomorrow from the City of Light!
