Paris and London

 

We travelled to Paris, arriving New Year's Eve 2002. We spent a week in Paris, staying in a gloomy pension in the Marais district. To be fair, though, pretty much all of Paris was pretty gloomy on this trip! From Paris, we took the Eurostar through the Chunnel into London, and stayed 4 nights in this cool basement flat near Victoria Station. Then it was back on the Eurostar to Paris, where we spent the last 3 nights of our trip in a much less gloomy hotel in the Rue Claire district near the Eiffel Tower. Cold, but a very nice trip.

 

Champs d'Elysee on New Year's Eve. Looks cool, but actually it was kind of a weakl party...
