jour no. 2
OK, so day 2 is a day late... Yesterday was very jet-laggy, and I haven't hit a comfort level yet with Paris, French, Parisiens, so the day was a bit exhausting. It was May Day, and so everything was closed, and it was hard to figure out what to do. I missed the parades or rallies or whatever it is that happens on May Day, but I did have a nice lunch (including my first escargots!), complete with a carafe of Lyonnais vin blanc.
I walked through Place Vendome, then went to the Opera to try to buy tickets, but the box office was closed. It's as beautiful as ever, of course.
