Having planned this trip months ago we had no idea that France would make it to the final of he Rugby World Cup nor that we would actually be in Paris the weekend of the final.

As you can imagine, the city was in full rugby final mode and excitement was running high.  I (along with half of Paris it seemed) braved the cold weather to watch the game on a huge screen which had been erected outside the Hotel de Ville.  Of course I was supporting the French so I joined in with all the audience participation!

Other highlights of Paris were:

The park behind Notre Dame

The Marais District

The beautiful blue sky

The bakeries!

Pere Lachaise Cemetery
