This was taken one morning while we were in Paris. I voluntered to babysit her for the day. I told her she could wear anything she want, put on makeup if she wishes and I would bring her to anywhere in Paris as long as she behaves herself. So here´s what she did first ...
Check out her sandals ...and her colourful toe polish!
We started the day with a trip to Jardin De Luxemburg to sail some miniature sailboat. It was not her favourite activity because she thinks it is too boring. The sail boat takes a while to reach the edge before she gets to push it to the middle again. Ah well. As luck has it, her first sail boat got stuck underneath a sprouting fountain in the middle of the pond. So this was her second sail boat.
The highlight of the WHOLE trip, yes .. the whole 2 week stay, is this ... THE pony ride. I still remember clearly how frighten she got when she went up to the pony. But the funniest of the lot must be when she started shouting to the pony carer `where is my seatbeat, where is my seatbelt´?! while seated on the pony! Haha!
Eiffel Tower is a must when one is in Paris and I knew exactly why I wanted to bring her there for. She was thrilled to say the least.
We adjourned to Notre Dame to meet up with her mummy and daddy but plan changed a little. After playing in a nearby park with some local children, I took her to a local bistro for a meal. A proper meal.
She ate up two servings of baguette and claimed that its the best bread she´d ever eaten. Well. She´s in Paris after all. I also ordered I believe one of the most expensive vanilla ice cream one could find. 12 Euro per glass and she did not even liked it. Ha. She instead missed rice so much and nicked most of it off my plate, just as it is ... plain. No sauce, no chicken breast pieces, nothing.
smoked duck terrine appetiser ...
Eating in Paris is pricey. For a basic set lunch like this where I easily pay under 12 Euro around Provence, I had them around 25 Euro in Paris. But it is a meal with my beloved niece.
