After landing in CDG and making my way to immigration, baggage claim, the airport shuttle and then the RER train to the city, transferring to a Metro line and walking to the right address-I found the apartment and I only had to ask about a dozen people for assistance. But every single person was friendly and helpful and not too upset I don’t speak a lick of French. French people are super nice-no matter what people normally say about them being rude.
Sunny and I are reunited and it’s wonderful to talk and wander around. We walked the Seine and stopped for lunch. The sky was moody and grey. I snapped a few photos before the rain came.
Lunch: Espresso-yuck, not very good. Camembert cheese and bread with a ham crepe and salad. Awesome! Sunny had a salad topped with warm goat cheese on toasted baguette. Delicious. I’m in food heaven.
After getting rained and hailed on the sun came out along with a rainbow. We saw the Musee d’Orsay, Jardin de Tuleries, Louvre, Effeil Tower.

We stopped for macaroons and ate cheese every chance I could get. The lock bridge was interesting. It's a pedestrian bridge where people are hanging locks symbolizing love. It's turned into urban art. I especially liked the lovey-dovey ones.
