Well, here it is, our last night in Paris. This morning we woke up a little on the late side, but that's OK. It's our vacation. We went to Hermes and did a little shopping there. Their scarves are so pretty. And the salespeople were extra-nice, I don't care what Oprah says. If she had been there on time, they would have let her in. It had nothing to do with her color. Anyway, after shopping, we went to Delizie d'Uggiano for lunch. We ate at that restaurant twice last time we were in Paris, so we had to go back for the tortellini aux truffes. Yum! I just love truffles. After lunch we came back to the hotel for a nap. We slept for a long time, during which time it rained. So that made us not want to wake up even more. After our nap, Robert went out to get some money and a macaron. He found "La Maison du Chocolat" and he brought back some goodies from there. He got a little lost coming back, but eventually found his way back to the hotel. About 8:15, we left the hotel to go find some dinner and wound up at "Royal Madeleine" a place that Sarah, Bob and I had eaten at last time in Paris, too. It's not unusual for parisians to return to the same restaurant(s) over and over, so we're just doing as the parisians do. We had wine, and foie gras and creme brulee and life is good.

Tomorrow our plane leaves at 1:30, so this is my last blog entry from France for now. I am so thankful and happy that I made the decision to come along with Robert on his trip. It has been wonderful and hasn't done anything to dissuade my opinion of France and her people. A bientot! Vive la France!
