Day 4 we woke up early and headed to a tourist office to purchase a trip the next day bound for Reims, the champagne region of France. I would have loved to have gone to Bourgogne, but our guide Serge explained that the traffic in between two of the cities along the way is thick, making a special tour much too complicated. That will have to wait.
But Notre Dame de Paris was right there, so we strolled by, snapped off some pictures and then walked around Île St.-Louis–an island in the middle of the River Seine made famous in the gorgeous song by Édith Piaf, Sous Le Ciel de Paris.
Statue Of Charlemagne
I got off a picture of the Obelisk at Place de la Concord, but it came out over exposed. Here is a salvaged close-up of one of the two fountains at Place de la Concorde (Fontaines de la Concorde).
