The canal was great and very interesting but it's great to be back in Paris. 2 weeks is long enough to be in close quarters with a dinky shower and pump toilet. It was good to have been bare foot and no make up too.
We are staying in the 5th Ade this time, a part of Paris we haven't seen before. Our hotel is opposite the main entrance to the Sorbonne and it's a really lovely area. Lots of students, bars, cinemas and quirky shops, cafes and relatively few tourists. Walked our legs off yesterday in much cooler weather, very welcome. Tomorrow we start the journey homeward (to Hong Kong)
