Greetings from the Marais

The good news is that, because of the Lufthansa strike, we are getting an extra day in Paris. The bad news is that we spent much of the morning running around trying to arrange for a return flight to the U.S. since ours was canceled, and we will need to switch hotels because ours is booked for next week! Paris is a little strained right now, with lots of security carrying visible guns after the attack in Tunisia, but the weather has been gorgeous and we have gotten to see nearly every place on our list.

The blister on my foot is better because we were sitting in a travel agent's office for an hour, though it meant not getting to see Gertrude Stein at Père Lachaise Cemetery, and we took a late afternoon cruise on the sunny Seine after an overcast early afternoon in the Marais, which was in a celebratory mood, lots of people sharing falafel and lots of music being played. We had omelets and crepes for lunch before visiting Victor Hugo's house and curry patties for a late dinner while packing and watching Les Mis!
